We believe in Hyperspectral Imaging and Spectroscopy
Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)
The near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a physical analysis technique in the short-wave infrared light range. Just like spectroscopy in the mid- and far-infrared range (MIR and FIR) it is based on infrared spectroscopy, but allows the use of other materials and light sources.
Infrared spectroscopy is based on molecular vibrations by electromagnetic radiation in the near infrared (760 nm - 2500 nm).
NIRS is particularly suitable for detecting organic compounds. Through specific markers also non-organic materials can be marked . Using NIRS one can generate a "fingerprint" for each material.
This results in different use cases which are described below.
Use cases are found in various industries
Not only data from industrial cameras can be evaluated with hyperspectral algorithms. We are involved in various innovative projects that provide new impetus for classic industrial applications.

The BMBF funding project “FarmingIOS” was initiated by Photonics BW and is an example of the influence of photonics on many different areas of life and industries.
The project partners InMach Intelligente Maschinen GmbH, University of Tübingen and University of Hohenheim bring together expertise in the fields of agricultural science, software development, control system technology and robotics. This makes the project an excellent example of the use of optical technologies as key technologies in these industries. Through this interdisciplinary collaboration, the development of the new field of photonics in agriculture and the inclusion of innovative start-ups, the project also contributes significantly to the implementation of the cluster strategy of Photonics BW.
