According to research firm Million Insights, the global hyperspectral Imaging Market is segmented based on product type, technology, form factor, system, application and geography. An imaging technique collecting and processing information through an electromagnetic spectrum, hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is the combination of spectroscopy and digital imaging techniques to obtain the spectral and spatial information about object. It is better known as imaging spectroscopy or imaging spectrometry.
The main purpose of the hyperspectral imaging technique is to identify and create a spectrum of each pixel of the image to study object. It gives physical and geometrical features of objects such as shape, size, appearance and color, along with the chemical composition of the object via spectral analysis. This imaging is performed to identify different objects and materials.
Hyperspectral imaging is a combination of various spectral methods like fluorescence imaging, near infrared, and so on. This type of imaging is dependent on the principle of spectral based contract. Hyperspectral imaging technique is used in the analysis of retinopathy, recognizing & detecting contaminants in food and development of crops. In research areas like nano-drug delivery and nanotoxicology, hyperspectral imaging technique plays a major role. Using an instrument imaging spectrometer hyperspectral images are produced. The image is produced at multiple wavelengths and produces three-dimensional hyperspectral data cube along with one spectral dimension and two spatial dimensions.
