Laser Tracking and Laser Applications


Our SWIR camera product family includes specific models that are very well aligned for demanding laser applications, including:

  • Laser communications
  • Laser Tracking – up to 10 kHz
  • Laser alignment & Beam Profiling
  • Active Imaging

Many of our SWIR cameras support fast gating (100 nanoseconds) which is essential for applications involving pulsed lasers. We support laser tracking applications where there is and is not a trigger signal from the laser control module. Laser profiling is an important application and for many of our cameras you can purchase a camera without a sensor window or with an AR coated window to mitigate fringing effects.

Suggested models for laser applications include the 640V-STP, 640M-STP, 640G-STP.

Life Science Imaging and Microscopy

SWIR opens new opportunities for deep tissue imaging for In-vivo applications. Traditionally, for deep tissue imaging ionizing radiation is used (X-ray and Y-ray) but poses some risks to biological tissue.

Photoluminescence Imaging is preferred, using fluorescent Dye and excitation laser.
Traditionally Visible and NIR band have been used:

  • Visible band (400-650nm) is used only for superficial tissues (strong scattering and absorption).
  • NIR band or NIR1 (850-900nm) has been used in the last 20 years.

SWIR or NIR2 (1300-1400nm) has the following advantages:

  1. Stronger transmission than NIR band
  2. Lower scattering
  3. Commercially available and FDA approved dyes show strong emission in the NIR2 band.

We can configure microscopes for your live animal imaging or fluorescence imaging application.

Suggested SWIR cameras for these types of application include:  640V-ST, 640V-STP, 640G-STP, HiPe, and Sens 1280
