IRC Introduces SWIR Scientific Camera with Extended Imaging Capability

IRCameras (IRC), the industry's leading provider of custom high performance infrared imaging systems, announces today the availability of an extended short wave infrared (SWIR) scientific camera to its IRC800 and IRC900 series cameras. Unlike traditional SWIR products that only detect wavelengths up to 1.7 µm, these cameras are capable of detecting wavelengths out to 2.5 µm.

This extended imaging capability gives users a better understanding about a wide range of materials and phenomena, and the ability to see objects and make measurements in this important and active spectral region.

IRC developed these new LN2 and Stirling cooled SWIR cameras by exploiting their custom camera capability. This enabled them to optimize the sensor, dewar, cold stop and cold filter for the extended SWIR spectral range. Theses cameras provide customers with more information, leading to better analysis and decision making. The new IRC800 and IRC900 series SWIR cameras are available in both 640x512 and 1280x1024 image formats.

These extended SWIR cameras are perfectly designed for spectroscopy, hyper spectral/multispectral applications, chemical-biological detection and geological mapping.

"IRC's willingness to build cameras that meet the market need facilitated the development of the SWIR series of cameras," said Steve McHugh, president of IRCameras. "IRC identified a gap in the market and developed this breakthrough technology to meet that need. Our product arms customers with the technology they need to identify more, do more and make better decisions quickly."

The SWIR cameras are currently available and on display at Photonics West from February 4-6, 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif.
