Line-Scan Polarization Camera Experiences No Interpolation

Teledyne DALSA has in production what it is calling the industry’s first line-scan polarization camera. The latest member of the Piranha family, the Piranha4-2k polarization camera uses the company’s advanced quadlinear CMOS image sensor with nanowire micro-polarizer filters. It captures multiple native polarization state data without any interpolation. With a maximum line rate of 70 kHz, the camera outputs independent images of 0°(s), 90° (p), and 135° polarization states as well as an unfiltered channel. Other features include selectable depths of 8, 10, or 12 bits. For more details, a spec sheet is available. Teledyne DALSA, Ontario, Canada.
