Spectral Masters, Inc. presents its digital imaging technology and scientific-grade hyperspectral tools and techniques to the graphic arts, defense and medical industries.
Hyperspectral Technology (HT) is associated with Spectroscopy, or the physics of the Electromagnetic Radiation Spectrum. More specifically, HT is based upon the physics of Spectrophotometry, the study of EMR found between 360 and 830 nanometers, often called Visible Light.
Spectrophotometric physics concerns itself with, among other things, making reproducible measurements by applying four natural phenomena associated with visible light: Reflection; the bending or folding of light rays, Refraction; deflecting light rays by passing them through dissimilar media at an angle, Diffraction; modification of light rays passing through or reflecting off ruled surfaces, and Dispersion; separating light rays into visible bands perceived by humans as hues.
HT also utilizes two engineering disciplines associated with spectrophotometric physics: Photometry; the measurement of light intensity and Colorimetry; specifying numerically the color of a visual stimulus by defining the spectral radiant power distribution of the stimulus.
Spectral Masters, Inc. applies spectral science and related engineering disciplines in innovative ways to create tools, methods and techniques for image capture and reproduction.
