The SIM family of ultra-high-speed cameras are used in leading research laboratories around the world. Capable of capturing up to 32 images at 1 billion frames per second, they are proven to be able to capture visual data from even the most fleeting of phenomena.
Wai Chan, Managing Director of Specialised Imaging commented: “We were looking to upgrade the design of our SIM multi-channel framing camera to meet the expected higher performance demands from our customers in the next couple of years. As a part of this review, we decided a new multi-channel beam splitter optical module that could deliver better performance than the current model was a key factor. To meet the design goals for our new SIM camera we specified that the beam splitter optical module should be compact, with a system aperture of f2.8 giving us up to 16 channels with a 17mm viewport on each channel."
The new beam splitter optical module is be able to incorporate high quality, user changeable filters that would allow Specialised Imaging next generation SIM cameras to satisfy the expanding market demand for high-speed hyperspectral imaging
Wai Chan continued: "Added to this already challenging design specification we stated that the new beam splitter optical module should also be able to incorporate high quality, user changeable filters that would allow our next generation SIM cameras to satisfy the expanding market demand for high-speed hyperspectral imaging. Having worked with Resolve Optics previously on design and development of key optics for our camera systems we again turned to them for this demanding project. I am very pleased to say that the Resolve Optics team has risen to the challenge and designed a beam splitter optical module that meets all of our specifications”.
