Get the optimal wavelengths or wavenumber selection ranges for your NIR-Application

This is very useful for chip sensor manufacturers to reduce detector/sensor hardware cost or reducing scanning time by leaving out or over skipping the gaps in the wavelength range for dedicated applications.

Use cases

  • Application Developers get useful information for their own NIR model development process or insight model validation.
  • Chip sensor manufacturers can reduce detector/sensor hardware cost
    • The array can be restricted to the minimum necessary area/pixels for a specific application, allow lower sensor cost.
  • Dedicated application / sensor device suppliers can reduce scanning time
    • The measurement process can skip over the gaps (MEMS) in the wavelength range for dedicated applications, allow faster measurement time.

Why do Wavelength Selection for Calibration and Prediction?

  • Because the selected wavelength / wavenumber range depends heavily on the specific application.
  • To eliminate unwanted or noisy wave bands from the measured samples (application), optical path (e.g. fiber optics) or detector ranges (signal to noise).
  • The Data-Preprocessing does ignore noisy wave bands (no artifacts or amplifying noise).
  • The model robustness can be increased.
  • The model prediction performance (accuracy, precision) can be increased.

How it works

  1. Send your NIR and Lab-data to create an fully optimized calibration for your NIRS-Application (how the Calibration Model service works, see NIR-Predicor, see also Anonymize your NIR spectroscopy data).
  2. You can test the calibration on new measured NIR data with the free NIR-Predictor software.
  3. Get payed access to the selected wavelengths of the optimize calibration.
  4. The selected wavelengths are delivered in the form of
    “7828-6476, 5560-4208 [1/cm] (number of data points = 678).”
    If you supply the spectral data in wavelengths [nm] instead of wavenumbers [1/cm], this is taken into account accordingly.
    The number of data points of the “number of data points” selection is specified for control purposes to check whether the interpreted ranges include the number of points.
