Hyperspectral imaging in geology

The best performing infrared imaging core for the most particular mineral classification

When it comes to the acquisition of geological parameters, hyperspectral imaging readily proves its worth with the capability to identify specific chemical bonds or to differentiate between objects of the same colour. 

By applying the core infrared technologies from Xenics, you will be provided with all of the information that you require for classifying a large variety of minerals, even when closely related visually or chemically.

What is hyperspectral imaging being used for?

  • Material sorting
  • Drill core analysis
  • Airborne mineral mapping

What do we offer?

Xenics is the leading worldwide manufacturer of infrared detectors and cameras for infrared spectroscopy OEM manufacturers. We are a one-stop partner covering the full IR spectrum with a broad product portfolio for the mining industry’s specific requirements.

A partnership with Xenics will elevate your hyperspectral imaging capabilities to new heights. When combined with a spectrometer, Xenics’ infrared cameras increase the level of detail and hence deliver you more information.

Using Xenics’ infrared cameras not only makes your hyperspectral imaging setups simpler, but also much cheaper than before.

What features are needed?

  • High sensitivity
    A low noise camera gives high sensitivity for small signals
  • Easy integration
    Fast time to market with standard camera interfaces
  • Low maintenance
  • Easy visualization of high speed features

Extreme compact size and low weight

Given the extremely compact size and low weight of the Xenics XS-1.7-320 SWIR camera it was extremely easy to integrate it into our existing optical setup.
