Mid-IR Single Photon Imaging and Spectroscopy using Upconversion: SPECIALISTS’ MEETING SET-210

    Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


    Low noise, spectral mid-infrared (mid-IR) imaging and detection based on upconversion are emerging as a promising technology of great technical and scientific interest. The reason is that many important chemical compounds display unique and strong mid-IR spectral fingerprints revealing valuable chemical information.
    We report on a portable mid-IR upconversion system that is compatible with standard NIR/VIS cameras. Examples will be given illustrating the potential of upconversion for single photon imaging at 3 µm, mid-IR hyper-spectral imaging and spectroscopy.
