PRESS RELEASE

Hyperspec Extended VNIR covers broad spectral range from 600nm to 1600nm

Fitchburg, MA February 20, 2009 Headwall Photonics, a leading supplier of high performance integrated spectrometer systems for spectral imaging and chemical sensing applications, announced the availability of the Hyperspec Extended VNIR sensor, the industry's only hyperspectral imaging instrument covering the broad spectral region of 600 to 1600 nanometers. Sensor performance has been optimized for process inspection applications such as semiconductor manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and food safety & quality.

Headwall has continually expanded the capabilities of the performance-leading Hyperspec family of hyperspectral imagers. Based on Headwall's patented, aberration-corrected concentric design, Hyperspec offers exceptional spectral imaging and spatial uniformity within a wide field of view.

"Headwall's customers are deploying our hyperspectral sensors in process environments such as semiconductor manufacturing and require innovative spectral imaging solutions that cover new and challenging spectral regions. Headwall is uniquely positioned in that we design and manufacture the high efficiency diffractive optics which are the strategic element of our patented, reflective imaging spectrometer designs" said David Bannon, Headwall's Chief Executive Officer. Headwall's ability to manufacture application-specific sensors for spectral regions of interest affords our customers with well-differentiated capabilities."

Providing industry-leading spectral and spatial resolution, the Hyperspec platform offers sensors optimized for the following spectral regions:

UV-VIS: 330 to 825 nm
VIS: 380 to 825 nm
VNIR: 400 to 1000 nm
Extended VNIR: 600 to 1600 nm
Near Infrared: 900 to 1700 nm
Short Wave IR: 1000 to 2500 nm
