This meeting is aimed at bringing together participants from all fields of hyperspectral imaging. Unlike conventional colour cameras, which capture light in just three spectral windows, hyperspectral cameras have the ability to capture an entire section of the electromagnetic spectrum at every pixel.
Hyperspectral imaging is now being used in research and industry to determine viewed objects' temperatures, chemical compositions, moisture, fat and sugar content in the food industry as well for a range of applications in art, biology, defence, forensics and anti-counterfeiting, medicine, museums, pharmaceuticals, surveillance, remote sensing and industrial inspection.
Important issues for spectral imaging are associated with developing instrumentation that can demonstrate the required performance criteria, the development of algorithms for calibration and exploitation of spectral data, the miniaturisation of instruments and the improving spectral range and sensor technology.
