General image sensors and spectrometers

About this webinar

There are many spectrometers on the market for various spectroscopy applications. In this presentation, you can learn what’s unique about Hamamatsu’s spectrometers. We are not just a run-of-the-mill supplier; we are uniquely positioned to provide every aspect of spectrometer technology. Hamamatsu is well-known as a quality sensor (CCD, CMOS) provider, and now also for MEMS/MOEMS solutions including transmission gratings and nano-imprinted surface-enhanced substrates (SERS) and micro-spectrometers. We combine these unique technologies to manufacture portable Raman and other optical modules. To cover the NIR, many are turning towards MEMS-FPI tunable filters, the MEMS-FTIR engine, or compact InGaAs-based thin flat spectrometers, forming low-cost handheld spectroscopy solutions.

We cover a broad spectral range from UV to NIR, and miniaturization and low cost modules are part of recent development themes at Hamamatsu. We will continue to work closely with customers, new and existing, and together we will create the spectroscopy solutions for the next generation.

Topics of presentation:
Part of this presentation’s purpose is for attendees to understand the technology limits of image sensor solutions such as back-thinned CCDs, CMOS passive pixel with variable integration, CMOS active pixel sensors, and InGaAs image sensors. By knowing the detector technology, we can apply that to spectrometers to quickly assess instrumentation capabilities.

We will introduce specialized products including the award-winning, grating-based micro-spectrometer (C12880MA) and the smallest grating-based spectrometer in the world, our new surface mount spectrometer (SMD series, C14384MA-01).


About the presenter

John D. Gilmore

John D. Gilmore has been characterizing leading-edge photonic devices for over three decades. He has developed sophisticated test and measurement capabilities, enabling precise characterization of image sensors and spectrometers. In addition, he has vast knowledge of the operation, optimization, and practical use of photonic devices, with particular emphasis on image sensors, spectrometers, and Raman modules. He received his B.S. degree in electronic engineering technology (EET) from Capital Institute of Technology, Laurel, Md., in 1986, and received his M.S. degree in electrical engineering with a concentration in solid state devices and material processing from the New Jersey Institute, Newark, N.J., in 1993. He joined Hamamatsu Corp. in September of 1986 and is presently the spectrometer business development manager. He is currently involved with the development of application-specific inspection equipment, general spectrometer marketing, and advanced field technical support.
