Affordable simultaneous hyperspectral imaging

Affordable simultaneous hyperspectral imaging Purpose – The aim of the research project which resulted in this work is to achieve a cost‐effective approach for instantaneous hyperspectral imaging. Design/methodology/approach – This paper presents a simulation study and an experimental evaluation of a novel imaging spectroscopy technique, where multi‐channel image data are acquired instantaneously and transformed into spectra by using a statistical modelling approach. A digital colour camera equipped with an additional colour filter array was used to acquire an instantaneous single image that was demosaicked to generate a multi‐channel image. A statistical transformation approach was employed to convert this image into a hyperspectral one. Findings – The feasibility of this method was investigated through extensive simulation and experimental tasks where promising results were obtained. Practical implications – The small size of the initially acquired single instantaneous image makes this approach useful for applications where video‐rate hyperspectral imaging is required. Originality/value – For the first time, a simplified prototype of this novel imaging spectroscopy technique was built and evaluated experimentally. And the results were compared with those of a more ideal simulation study. Recommendations for how to improve the prototype were also suggested as a result of the comparison between the simulation and the prototype evaluation results. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sensor Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The aim of the research project which resulted in this work is to achieve a cost‐effective approach for instantaneous hyperspectral imaging. Design/methodology/approach – This paper presents a simulation study and an experimental evaluation of a novel imaging spectroscopy technique, where multi‐channel image data are acquired instantaneously and transformed into spectra by using a statistical modelling approach. A digital colour camera equipped with an additional colour filter array was used to acquire an instantaneous single image that was demosaicked to generate a multi‐channel image. A statistical transformation approach was employed to convert this image into a hyperspectral one. Findings – The feasibility of this method was investigated through extensive simulation and experimental tasks where promising results were obtained. Practical implications – The small size of the initially acquired single instantaneous image makes this approach useful for applications where video‐rate hyperspectral imaging is required. Originality/value – For the first time, a simplified prototype of this novel imaging spectroscopy technique was built and evaluated experimentally. And the results were compared with those of a more ideal simulation study. Recommendations for how to improve the prototype were also suggested as a result of the comparison between the simulation and the prototype evaluation results.
