The dual camera snapshot hyperspectral imaging system developed at Rice University captures several types of data about plasmonic nanoparticles in an instant. The image at left shows the positions of nanoparticles in an array, while a spectral analysis of the same nanoparticles at right shows the differing range of spectra for each. Knowing the range of plasmonic responses in nanoparticles will help industry fine-tune their manufacture for specific applications.
