InGaAs area image sensor for hyperspectral cameras
Hamamatsu Photonics has developed an InGaAs area image sensor for hyperspectral cameras, capable of detecting shortwave infrared light up to 2.55µm.
Hamamatsu’s InGaAs image sensor, G14674-0808W, is fabricated using compound opto-semiconductor manufacturing technology.
Installing this new InGaAs area image sensor into hyperspectral cameras for plastic recycling will boost the recycling rate. Hyperspectral cameras can screen and sort plastics containing flame-retardant resin to separate them out from other plastics, which has been extremely difficult up until now.
