Xenics' latest Lynx linescan IR camera targets medical and industrial imaging
Xenics' Lynx-1.7-2048 linescan camera images in the near-infrared (NIR) spectrum, from 0.9 to 1.7 µm with wide dynamic range.
The Lynx-1.7-2048 linescan camera images in the near-infrared (NIR) spectrum, from 0.9 to 1.7 µm with wide dynamic range, targeting scientific and medical imaging. For industrial applications it performs nondestructive depth analysis in combination with optical coherence tomography (OCT). The camera is based on the company’s Xlin linear-sensor series. It features line length of 2048 pixels, at 12.5- or 25-µm pixel pitch and 12.5- or 250-µm height.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
Highest Resolution SWIR Line Camera Now Ready To Be Ordered
With its innovative Lynx-1.7-2048, Xenics is to conquer the near infrared - 0.9 to 1.7µm - for highest-resolution line cameras. Lynx-1.7-2048 offers high optical sensibility and wide dynamic range specifically targeting scientific and medical imaging. For promising
industrial applications the Lynx-1.7-2048 enables detail-rich non-destructive depth analysis in combination with optical coherence tomography (OCT).
The new Lynx version is based on Xenics' proven linear-sensor series Xlin. It boasts the longest line length of 2048 pixels, at a 12.5 or 25µm pixel pitch and 12.5 or 250µm height, across the industry. This finely tuned layout covers a wide range of high-resolution industrial and spectroscopic applications. Compared to the complexity of traditional multi-camera configurations the new highest-resolution Lynx ensures simple and low-cost solutions, even in highly demanding applications.
Due to its excellent performance data the new Lynx-1.7-2048 is especially suited for near-infrared imaging and spectroscopy, which are rapidly evolving as reliable quality-assurance tools to uncover, at highest resolution, hidden defects in the tested objects. A significant future use of spectroscopy, which will see annual growth rates of 60 percent, is optical coherence tomography. OCT in the near infrared can analyze the properties of lower, hidden layers of an object. As an example in the medical realm, OCT yields cross-sectional images of the human skin without surgically invasive procedures. Lynx, with its high resolution, low background noise and very high line rates, is a perfect tool to be integrated in medical systems for skin cancer detection.
