SWIR Cameras

A SWIR (Short-Wave Infrared) camera is a specialized camera that can detect and capture images in the shortwave infrared range, typically between 700 and 1700 nanometers, as well as visible light range (400-700nm). SWIR cameras have a number of important applications in fields such as industrial inspection, semiconductor manufacturing, and astronomy.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing a SWIR camera:

  1. Sensor resolution: The resolution of the camera’s sensor is an important consideration when choosing a SWIR camera. Higher resolution sensors can capture more detailed images, but may also be more expensive.
  2. Quantum efficiency: The quantum efficiency of a camera refers to the ability of the sensor to convert photons into electrical signals. A higher quantum efficiency means that the camera is more sensitive and can capture clearer images.
  3. Noise level: The level of noise in the final image can be a concern when using SWIR cameras. Look for cameras with low noise levels to ensure high-quality images.
  4. Frame rate: The frame rate of the camera determines how quickly it can capture images or video. Look for cameras with high frame rates if you need to capture fast-moving objects.
  5. Cooling: Some SWIR cameras require cooling to reduce noise and improve image quality. Depending on your application, you may need to choose a camera with a built-in cooling system.

Several products of SWIR cameras are available to choose. It is important to carefully evaluate your specific needs and choose a camera that best fits your requirements. Additionally, it may be helpful to consult with our experts in the field to determine the most appropriate camera for your particular application.
