Hyperspectral imaging benefits from new cooperation between Gooch & Housego and PhiLumina

April 8, 2014
Gooch & Housego and PhiLumina have signed a collaborative agreement to expand their capabilities and offerings for spectral imaging applications.

Gooch & Housego (G&H; Orlando, FL and Ilminster, England) and PhiLumina (Gulfport, MS) have signed a collaborative agreement to expand their capabilities and offerings for spectral imaging applications. As a result, PhiLumina will be able to integrate G&H’s high speed acousto-optical tunable filter (AOTF) based spectral imaging technology into its spectral imaging platform to expand its client base. In return, G&H will offer PhiLumina’s modular and customizable spectral imaging software platform to its customers. In addition, PhiLumina will be able to offer its other spectral imaging systems and technologies through G&H marketing and distribution channels.

“This collaborative agreement will allow G&H to deliver better on its promise of fully application-specific spectral imaging tools for its user base," explains Alex Fong, senior vice president of G&H Life Sciences and Instrumentation division. "G&H’s solid-state AOTF technology allows rapid sequential and non-sequential center wavelength access and selectable bandwidth sizes. It also enables direct triggering of camera hardware after each wavelength is acquired to maximize speed, allowing hyperspectral data sets to be acquired as quickly as the camera can acquire images, which opens the door for novel methodologies, such as real-time unmixing."

PhiLumina provides turnkey hyperspectral imaging systems, service, support, and software, and is currently working to release a line of intelligent imaging systems and real-time hyperspectral applications. PhiLumina’s products are certified by the Space Foundation and are used in the NASA Spinoff program, which in part demonstrates the ability to apply aerospace technology in various environments.
