Hyperspectral PoliSpectra® H116

PoliSpectra H116 -Hyperspectral Imaging Spectrometer

Hyperspectral Imaging Spectrometer Applications

HORIBA has developed a unique hyperspectral imaging spectrometer with an integrated scientific CMOS camera (12-16 bit) featuring HDR (95dB Dynamic Range and 1.7e- noise) and 95% Q.E peak efficiency:

PoliSpectra® H116 features broad UV-NIR coverage in one acquisition (185-1050 nm) combined with the highest spectral resolution (<1 nm).

The elegant all-concentric design combines high spatial and spectral resolution using a type-I holographic diffraction grating. This system is used as a line-scanning instrument (push-broom) that collects full spectral data simultaneously, across the input slit height at 188 frames per second (or higher with AOI/binning).

For OEM hyperspectral and multispectral applications

  • Remote Sensing (Aerial - drone/uas/uav or aircraft…)
  • Quality Control Inspection / Optical metrology in Semiconductors
  • DNA sequencing / Capillary Electrophoresis / PCR
  • Process Monitoring by Reflectometry, Emission, Raman, Fluorescence…
  • Microscopy (Mapping, Complete custom solutions)
  • Advanced Machine Vision / Industrial camera
  • Recycling (Sorting and quality control in recycling plants)
  • Food & Beverage Inspection


Alternatively, we offer H135, a more compact product with less spectral resolution and coverage

*Available in select countries.
