IMA - Hyperspectral Photoluminescence Imager from Photon etc

From solar cells to live cells, the quick and comprehensive IMA hyperspectral imaging system is suitable for photo or electroluminescence offers excellent image and data quality.

Key Features

The key features of the Photon etc IMA are:

  • Fast global mapping (non scanning)
  • Non-destructive analysis
  • Customization available
  • High spatial and spectral resolution
  • Complete system (source, microscope, camera, filtre, software)


The IMA hyperspectral imager is suitable for photovoltaic applications. Spectrally resolved images offer significant advantages that include micrometer scale resolution, absolute calibration of intensity and detection and excitation on a surface.

IMA rendered images are spectrally resolved luminescence images from multicrystalline CIS solar cell that help in studying its spatial inomogenities. Also the system was compared with a classical confocal microscope that show considerable gains in acquisition time.
