open-in-new Find other Near-infrared (NIR) chipsets


The DLP2010NIR digital micromirror device (DMD) acts as a spatial light modulator (SLM) to steer near-infrared (NIR) light and create patterns with speed, precision, and efficiency. Featuring high resolution in a compact form factor, the DLP2010NIR DMD is often combined with a grating single element detector to replace expensive InGaAs linear array-based detector designs, leading to high performance, cost-effective portable NIR Spectroscopy solutions. The DLP2010NIR DMD enables wavelength control and programmable spectrum and is well suited for low power mobile applications such as 3D biometrics, facial recognition, skin analysis, material identification and chemical sensing.
