Spectroscopy is widely used for the chemical analysis of matter of various kind. Spectrometers are used for the contactless chemical analysis in virtually any field of interest. Imaging spectrometers provide the opportunity for simple spatially resolved chemical analysis. Applications range from remote sensing applications over quality control in the food industry to plastics separation in the waste industry.
The Cubert GmbH provides the first of its kind, high resolution full frame imaging spectrometer. It records 2D-spatial information and all spectral bands at the same time. The complete imaging process takes as little as 1 ms (e.g. for measurements in sunlight). In contrast to the standard point or line scanning spectrometers, this novel technique is capable of the spectral imaging of moving objects or the work from small moving platforms without any image distortion. Additionally it offers the possibility of spectroscopic video capturing and analysis in real time.
