Spectral Imaging

Spectral imagers combine the advantages of both imaging and spectroscopy in a single instrument.

MUSES9 Cameras acquire a series of images at many wavelengths. A full spectrum is then available for every image pixel. Several millions of spectra can be collected within a few seconds.

MUSES9 Cameras are first-choice technology for the non destructive analysis of materials with high compositional heterogeneity.


Spectral Imagers are categorized into two broad categories: Multi- and Hyper- Spectral, depending on the number of the captured spectral bands.

Spectricon offers a full range of innovative and affordable products including both Multi-and Hyper-spectral cameras. The team* has more than 20 year experience in developing high-end, award-winning spectral imagers with hundredths of installations worldwide.
