Hyperspectral Imaging Using a Unique Prism WIth Curved Sides Site Launched

A new site has been launched by LightForm showcasing its pioneering hyperspectral imaging system. LightForm Inc is known for the PARISS imaging systems that that has revolutionized the field.

Asheville, United States - January 19, 2020 /PressCable/ —

LightForm has launched a new site showcasing the benefits of its products and hyperspectral imaging system. The team is known for designing the PARISS Hyperspectral Imaging kit, which is specialist laboratory based hardware and software.

More information can be found at: https://lightforminc.com

The newly launched site covers what multispectral imaging is, along with hyperspectral imaging. It also covers the PARISS software in detail, showing visitors how it works with a series of videos.

LightForm explains that there is a difference between hyperspectral and multispectral imaging. A multispectral image is characterized sequentially through a series of non-contiguous wavelength bandpass filters.

The new site highlights that following advances in computing power and instrument hardware, hyperspectral imaging and spectral imaging have merged.

This merging occurred with the goal of identifying and mapping the location of target objects within a heterogenous field of view.

With PARISS Hyperspectral Imaging Software, custom software can show the location and distribution of all selected spectral object as on a spectral topographical map.

Where the PARISS software separates itself from other tools is that it utilizes Spectral Waveform Cross Correlation Analysis in order to best extract signal buried in noise.

LightForm says that hyperspectral imaging was originally designed for remote Earth sensing. However, the latest developments in computer technology have allowed new designs with reduced weight and higher levels of sensitivity.

LightForm utilized these technological advances to pioneer hyperspectral microscopy for biological and medical applications.

They state: “In order to increase sensitivity diffraction grating designs were discarded in favor of a prism-based system. Originally developed by The Aerospace Corporation for remote sensing, after redesign, the PARISS imaging spectrograph was ideal for use as a microscope accessory.”

They add: “The final design resulted in a prism with curved sides that was named using an acronym PARISS (Prism and Reflector Imaging Spectroscopy System).”

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Feb 27, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Feb 27, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Feb 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs.
