New smartphone camera could tell you what things are made of


 

The rapid development of the technology is now allowing us to get precise information about the composition of something just by taking a snapshot or video of it with our smartphone. How would like to be able to know exactly what’s in your drink as an example? Well, you will very soon have that chance, all thanks to a compact hyperspectral imaging camera created at Tel Aviv University.

 

Hyperspectral imaging involves scanning light spectrum, which is not visible to the human eye. This makes it possible to identify the unique electromagnetic “fingerprints” of a variety of substances as well as processes.

 

 

While hyperspectral imaging is already done with larger cameras, the team led by Prof. David Mendlovic is working on the creation of much smaller optical component, the purpose of which is to be integrated into a smartphone. The scientists use the so called MEMS or microelectromechanical systems technology, which they assure is suitable for mass production and it is also easily compatible with the usual smartphone cameras's designs.

 

A prototype of the technology is in the making right now and it is reported to be ready by June 2015. The idea and the basic system have been already introduced at the Mobile Congress in Barcelona last month.

 

The name chosen for the hyperspectral imaging camera is “Unispectral”. Experts suggest that the technology will find its application not only as part of the consumer electronics, but also in the automotive industry, biotechnology, and homeland security.
