AIDO (Technological Institute of Optics, Color and Image), in the experimental test, compare our SC 500 with a halogen commercial source, based on a 50W tungsten halogen bulb built into a dichroic reflector on which is applied a layer of gold, to increase emissivity in the infrared is used. In order to evaluate the performance of both sources, a sensitive camera was used in the short wave infrared (900-1700nm).
The experimental procedure followed consisted in capturing different images in the shortwave infrared (900-1700nm) using a “Xeva” camera, and the comparison of the two spots of light from the morphological point of view and intensity. For this, a sweep was performed in the integration time of the camera, from 10 to 50 microseconds, with integration times of 10 ms, 15 ms, 20 ms, 25 ms, 30 ms, 35 ms and 50 ms.
