Paper Abstract

Pushbroom hyperspectral imaging systems require relative motion with respect to the target for hyperspectral data acquisition by means of spatial scanning, which increases the equipment cost and limits the application scenarios. We address this by introducing a pushbroom system with an internal line-scanning unit consisting of a slit aperture mounted on a piezoelectric linear motor. Different slit positions have tilted incidence angles at the grating, resulting in shifts of diffraction patterns relative to the imaging sensor. We demonstrate a method to compensate this shift by using a rotating arm controlled by a stepper motor to reposition the camera based on slit position.
