Short Wave Infrared cameras, cores and sensors

Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) cameras, cores and sensors are designed to detect and capture images in this specific wavelength range

Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) is part of the infrared spectrum covering the wavelength range from 900 nm to 1700 nm. Xenics, part of Exosens, Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) cameras are designed to detect and capture images in this specific wavelength range. Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) has the unique capability to penetrate through fog, smoke, dust or other atmospheric interference. Xenics Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) cameras are useful for various applications including industrial inspection, machine vision, material sorting, food inspection, R&D, medical, security, process control and transportation.

Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) cameras mostly use reflected light, similar to the shorter wavelengths of the visible spectrum, and are often complementary to Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) imagers.

Designed for easy integration into a wide range of imaging systems, Xenics Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) cameras offer a compact and lightweight design that's easy to mount and operate.

Frequently asked questions

What is a short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) camera?

A SWIR camera operates in the short-wavelength infrared spectrum, typically covering wavelengths from approximately 900 to 1700 nanometers. This specific type of camera is mainly used for imaging beyond the visible spectrum but shorter than the thermal camera.

What are the applications of SWIR cameras?

SWIR cameras can be used in various applications, including industrial inspection, medical imaging, agriculture, surveillance monitoring, and scientific research. Furthermore, SWIR cameras are particularly useful for tasks such as material analysis, moisture detection, and seeing through certain types of fog coming from particles of water for example or smoke.

Can SWIR cameras see through materials that are opaque to visible light?

Definitely! SWIR cameras can see through some materials that are opaque to visible light, such as certain plastics and silicon. This feature makes the SWIR cameras be useful for semiconductor industry for inspecting materials and processes.

Are SWIR cameras sensitive to heat like thermal infrared cameras?

SWIR cameras are not as sensitive to heat as thermal infrared cameras. They primarily capture reflected or emitted light in the short-wavelength infrared range, rather than relying on heat signatures as thermal cameras detect.

Can SWIR cameras detect hidden objects or substances?

SWIR cameras in principle are able to detect hidden objects or substances by revealing differences in material composition that are not visible in the visible spectrum. This feature makes the SWIR cameras valuable in security and inspection applications.
