The following videos demonstrate applications performed by three groups of our products. These include Hyperspectral Imagers, Tunable Light Sources and AOTF-NIR Luminar Spectrometers. Check back for periodic updates and additions.
- Hyperspectral Imager Demos
- TLS 300 Demo
- NIR Spectrometer Demos
In the following series, the first video demo, which is narrated, provides an overview of hyperspectral imaging applications. The other videos each demonstrates a specific application.
This video gives an overview of a few real-time applications of Brimrose hyperspectral imagers. These applications include scanning liquid samples, analysing and collecting data, quickly identifying unknown vapor emissions at a distance, laser targeting, biological and chemical imager, etc.
This video demonstrates Brimrose SWIR Hyperspectral Imager scanning across wavelength band of 900-1700nm. Brimrose SWIR hyperspectral imager is doing cloud analysis by a water tower near Brimrose's headquarters. Some of the clouds appear or disappear depending on the scanning wavelength. Spectral peaks can be seen for the overhead clouds. The moisture band around 1400nm (nanometers) significantly inhibits viewing.
Brimrose offers VA210 Series of AOTF Imaging Video Adapter for measuring visible or NIR hyperspectral imaging data remotely on a variety of materials. The video adapter is suitable for microscopic and general laboratory analysis. Using the Brimrose AOTF visible imager, the onion epidermis and pine stem included in this video are viewed under a variety of different color shades. They visibly fade and reappear depending on the spectrum of their particular colors as the imager sweeps across the visible spectrum range.
This video demonstrates Brimrose AOTF SWIR Hyperspectral Imager results for identifying unknown vapor emissions at 0.5 kilometer over wavelength band of 900-1700nm. By matching unknown vapors to known results, the hyperspectral imager can quickly identify what chemicals the smoke consists of. Brimrose also can provide aerial mounting for the imagers to fly through unknown hazardous areas. The imagers, which have no hysteresis and can operate at low temperatures, also can operate some distance from the subject and still provide a solid signature. In this video, the distance is half a kilometer.
This video demonstrates Brimrose IS510 SWIR Hyperspectral Imager, a rugged unit with no physically moving parts, testing five liquids in the short wavelength infrared spectrum. These include vinegar, gasoline, silicone oil, water and acetone. Brighter pixels reflect higher transmission spectral values. Acquisition speed of the system was 30 fps (video includes pauses at spectral peaks), with 200 total spectral points collected. A graph of the samples' center-weighted spectra is given at the end of the video. Differing absorption/transmission bands of the samples can be clearly seen, especially between water-based and oil-based groups.
This video demonstrates Brimrose AOTF Imaging System (BAOTFIS) software helping interpret and understand the data, and putting the customer in control. The customer can determine what spectrum is to be studied and how rapidly the wavelengths are to be imaged. The BAOTFIS software allows users to acquire hyperspectral data cubes and save them in either .txt or .png format. Direct and real-time control of the AOTF driver and camera are available via the application’s Graphical User Interface.
This video demonstrates how a chosen color, or wavelength, of light can be selected. The tunable light source system is operating in sweeping mode at a rate slow enough for the eye to distinguish the colors present in the source. With our software, any number of scan or dwell times, wavelengths, or intensities can be programmed in. The TLS is available from the near IR to near UV wavelength ranges.
The following video demonstrations show how our AOTF-NIR spectrometers can be used in many applications. These include blend-control testing for the pharma industry, on-site customer training using our SeedMeister analyzer, and measuring the chemical composition of tobacco.
This video demonstrates Brimrose Luminar spectrometers using FDA-approved real-time homogeneity monitoring and blend control testing for the pharmaceutical industry. These applications use the Brimrose Snap32! software including the Acquire program for direct online spectral data acquisition and the Predictor program for predicting uniformity.
This video highlights the comprehensive on-site training sessions Brimrose conducts with its customers. Representatives from Brimrose are shown closely working with customers in training and development of Brimrose SeedMeister AOTF-NIR analyzer including how to establish the baseline corrections and building the calibration models.
In this video, the Brimrose Luminar 4030 Free Space AOTF-NIR spectrometer is mounted directly on a conveyor belt on a production line in China to evaluate the chemical composition of tobacco. Moisture, nicotine and sugar are among the chemicals being analyzed. The spectrometer is critical for maintaining sound quality control in the tobacco industry.
