Paper Abstract

Imec has developed a process for the monolithic integration of optical filters on top of CMOS image sensors, leading to compact, cost-efficient and faster hyperspectral cameras. Linescan cameras are typically used in remote sensing or for conveyor belt applications. Translation of the target is not always possible for large objects or in many medical applications. Therefore, we introduce a novel camera, the Snapscan (patent pending), exploiting internal movement of a linescan sensor enabling fast and convenient acquisition of high-resolution hyperspectral cubes (up to 2048x3652x150 in spectral range 475–925 nm). The Snapscan combines the spectral and spatial resolutions of a linescan system with the convenience of a snapshot camera.
