Acquiring hyperspectral images with an interferential camera

Synopsis: Development of hardware and software to record hyperspectral images, as part of a semester project.

Level: MS/BS.

Description: The student will work together with the scientific and technical team on a concept successfully tested on an interferential hyperspectral camera prototype. He/she will take part in the development and testing of new functionalities on a newer, more compact prototype. The main challenge will be implementation and optimisation of the interface (GUI) to control the device and acquire images. The project has connections with many topics, including sampling theory, hyperspectral viewing software and artwork reproduction.

Deliverables: Improved software functionalities with documentation.

References: Current project, including documentation.

Prerequisites: Good general electronics and programming knowledge, in particular of embedded systems. Particularly C++ in a Raspberry Pi environment, Qt and C; basics of optics and mechanics are a plus.

Type of Work: ~70% software and hardware development, ~30% prototype testing.
