Paper Abstract

Imaging in the short wave infrared (SWIR) can bring useful contrast to situations and applications where visible or thermal imaging cameras are ineffective. This paper will define the short wave infrared technology and discuss developing imaging applications; then describe newly available 2-D (area) and 1-D (linear) arrays made with indium-gallium-arsenide (InGaAs), while presenting the wide range of applications with images and videos. Applications mentioned will be web inspection of continuous processes such as high temperature manufacturing processes, agricultural raw material cleaning and sorting, plastics recycling of automotive and consumer products, and a growing biological imaging technique, Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography.
