Wide-Field, Deep UV Raman Hyperspectral Imager

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Wide-Field, Deep UV Raman Hyperspectral Imager
ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS), teaming with the University of South Carolina, proposes a revolutionary wide-field Raman hyperspectral imaging system capable of meeting the stated needs. The proposed innovation couples a spatial heterodyne spectrometer (SHS), a novel slit-less spectrometer that operates similar to Michelson interferometer, with a fiber array spectral translator (FAST) fiber array, a two-dimensional imaging fiber for hyperspectral imagery, to create a novel wide-field, high throughput Raman hyperspectral imager capable of yielding very high spectral resolution in a small form factor. The system can be configuredin both benchtop and standoff configurations. A standoff configuration is beneficial for any rover based mission, since it does not require close contact to the analyte of interest and Raman can interrogate targets up to 100 meters away. More »
