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.
