From solar cells to live cells, the quick and comprehensive IMA PL™ hyperspectral imaging system offers photoluminescent mapping with excellent image and data quality.
The key features of the Photon etc IMA PL™ are:
Fast global mapping (non scanning)
High spatial and spectral resolution
Complete system (source, microscope, camera, filtre, software)
Photovoltaic cells - A new characterization method based on hyperspectral imaging recording spectrally resolved images allows the cartography of electroluminescence and photoluminescence.
From the data acquired spatial variations of cell properties such as open circuit voltage and transport mechanisms were identified and characterized.
Nanoparticles in cancer cells - Photon etc.’s hyperspectral imager, IMA PL™, can be equipped with a highly efficient dark field condenser which can be used to generate high contrast images of biological samples such as human breast cancer cells.
NIR Fluorescence of single nanotubes in live cells - IMA can be used for wide-field near-infrared hyperspectral imaging to spatially observe the fluorescence and spectral heterogeneity from single nanotube in living systems. This approach resolved up to 17 distinct species (chiralities) with single nanotube spatial resolution in live mammalian cells, murine tissues ex vivo, and zebrafish endothelium in vivo.
