White Paper: Optical Components for SWIR Imaging


For many applications in harsh or low-light environmental conditions such as nighttime, fog, smoke, water vapors, etc., devices operating in the visible range of light cannot process or provide a high-quality image because of unfavorable lighting and significant shading. This paper discusses the challenges in capturing high-quality imagery and contrasts and compares shortwave-infrared (SWIR) imaging with that of mid-wave and longwave-infrared imaging, and examines the advantages and applications of SWIR imaging devices.
