Short-wave infrared (SWIR) cameras with InGaAs sensor technology

Goldeye G-130 TEC1 with Sony IMX990 | InGaAs runs 94.0 frames per second at 1.3 MP resolution.

Goldeye cameras are equipped with InGaAs sensor technology making them sensitive in the short wave infrared spectrum ranging from 900 nm to 1,700 nm. Some models have extended sensitivity in the visible spectrum down to 400 nm or up to 2200 nm. All Goldeye SWIR cameras can be operated at very high frame rates and capture outstanding low-noise images. They are the perfect choice for industrial and scientific applications beyond the visible spectrum. All Goldeye models are available with either a Camera Link or a GigE Vision interface.

Goldeye cameras are very sensitive in the SWIR spectrum. They can be used in an extended operating temperature range. Thanks to temperature stabilization and integrated image correction, Goldeye cameras achieve an outstanding image quality with little noise and a high dynamic range. They are well-suited for many typical SWIR applications in various industry branches:

  • Semiconductor industry: Solar cell and chip inspection
  • Recycling industry: Plastics sorting
  • Medical imaging, sciences: Hyper- and multi-spectral imaging, microscopy, optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • Metal and glass industry: Thermal imaging of hot objects (250 °C to 800 °C)
  • Agriculture industry: Airborne remote sensing
  • Printing industry: Banknote inspection
  • Electronics industry: Laser beam profiling
  • Surveillance and security: Vision enhancement (for example, seeing through fog)
