  • Specim Produces 4000th Spectrograph
Oct 2013
OULU, Finland, Oct. 28, 2013 — The milestone of producing its 4000th spectrograph shows that hyperspectral imaging is moving from science labs into industrial applications, Specim Spectral Imaging Ltd. said recently.

"This is a significant milestone not only to us, but to the entire hyperspectral industry," said Specim co-founder and sales director Timo Hyvärinen."These 4000 units have paved the road for hyperspectral imaging from science labs to numerous growing industrial applications."

Specim began manufacturing imaging spectrographs used in remote sensing, industry and research in 1996 based on patented technology from the Technical Research Center of Finland (VTT). The 4000th unit that rolled off the production line this fall was an ImSpector N17E NIR spectrograph integrated to a hyperspectral camera for an OEM customer in the plastic sorting industry, the company said.

Specim also makes the AisaFENIX, the first commercial full-spectrum (380 to 2500 nm) push-broom hyperspectral imager to collect data in a single data cube. The device was a finalist for a 2013 Prism Award for photonics innovation in the Detectors, Sensors, Imaging and Cameras category.

remote sensing
Technique that utilizes electromagnetic energy to detect and quantify information about an object that is not in contact with the sensing apparatus.
An optical instrument for forming the spectrum of a light source and recording it on a film. The dispersing medium may be a prism or a diffraction grating. A concave grating requires no other means to form a sharp image of the slit on the film, but a plane grating or a prism requires auxiliary lenses or concave mirrors to act as image-forming means in addition to the dispersing element. Refracting prisms can be used only in parallel light, so a collimating lens is required before the prism and...
