Sensors Unlimited has launched its novel SU1024LDH2, which is a digital line scan, high-speed SWIR-indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) camera. Sensors Unlimited is a Goodrich ISR Systems company.
This 1,024-pixel camera has enhanced line rate to more than 91,900 lines/second, thereby making the camera ideal for applications in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging. The camera can capture three-dimensional images of choroidal vasculature, nerve head and retina. The camera is 3 inches in width, 3 inches in height and 2.4 inches in length.
The housing of the camera has both SAE and metric mounting holes on different sides of the camera for convenient configuration into current systems. This cost-effective camera can be conveniently mounted to spectrometers.
The wavelength response of the SU1024LDH2 varies from more than 0.8–1.7 µm with 25 or 500 µm in aperture heights and a pixel pitch of 25 µm. The user-selectable trigger modes of the camera include single line per trigger, gated burst, free run or programmable exposure.
The camera can be used in applications involving SWIR imaging, including emission spectroscopy or high-speed absorption for application in agricultural/food product inspection or in combustion research. These applications are ideal for detecting proteins, lipids and moisture in the range of 800–1700 nm. Some of the other applications comprise high-speed detection of wafers and silicon boules for photovoltaics, integrated circuits and solar cell/panel inspection.
