AN ADAPTIVE PROGRAMMABLE HYPERSPECTRAL IMAGER
Keywords: Hyperspectral Imaging, Snapshop Imaging
Abstract. An adaptive, hyperspectral imager is presented. We propose a system with easily adaptable spectral resolution, adjustable acquisition time, and high spatial resolution which is independent of spectral resolution. The system yields the possibility to define a variety of acquisition schemes, and in particular near snapshot acquisitions that may be used to measure the spectral content of given or automatically detected regions of interest. The proposed system is modelled and simulated, and tests on a first prototype validate the approach to achieve near snapshot spectral acquisitions without resorting to any computationally heavy post-processing, nor cumbersome calibration.
