Every material in the universe has its own unique optical spectral signature. When you shine light at it, the light reflected back includes information about its material composition.
Leading the Way
This technology has been used for years in many industries, but had been mostly limited to the laboratory and performed on large, expensive instruments. With its MicroNIR family of NIR sensor solutions and the development of miniaturized spectral sensing filters, VIAVI is leading the way in opening this capability to a wider range of applications outside the laboratory.
