Delivering high resolution images. More detailed information and better results for you, EVERY TIME!

You may or may not have ever heard the acronym SWIR, it stands for Short Wave InfraRed, and more often than not is going to refer to the wavelength band of light that sits between 900nm and 2500nm. Unlike Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) light, which is emitted from the object itself, SWIR light is similar to visible light in that photons are reflected or absorbed by an object, giving you the strongest contrast possible, which you really need for high resolution imaging. While LWIR imagers give off more poorly defined thermal images, SWIR imagers deliver high resolution images, much like visible light cameras. 

Acuros Cameras

Acuros SWIR Cameras are designed to provide high resolution broadband SWIR imaging, and they come with single-stage TECs for lower noise operation and better image stability. High resolution images are delivered with high frame rates, high dynamic range, and a range of exposure times. Our CQD sensor technology enables 2.1 megapixel, full-HD resolution, and it is the first commercially available SWIR product. Learn more about Acuros Cameras

SWIR Lenses

There are dozens of SWIR lenses available from commercial vendors that are compatible with SWIR Vision System’s Acuros cameras. It ranges from lenses with broad wavelength bands, large sensor areas, varying focal lengths, and working distances to enable brilliant imaging. Learn more about SWIR Lenses. 

CQD Sensors

SWIR CQD Sensor technology uses a monolithic integration approach. This uses the quantum dot-based sensor and is fabricated directly onto the CMOS readout integrated circuits using well-established, low cost semiconductor deposition techniques. This process does not require any type of hybridization, no epitaxial growth or exotic substrate materials. Learn more about SWIR Sensors.
