With the addition of the Genie Nano polarized model, Teledyne DALSA is the first company to offer polarization for both area and line scan (Piranha™4 polarization) cameras. Polarization enables detectability of stress, birefringence, through-reflection and glare from surfaces like glass, plastic, and metal. Sony’s newest image sensor, with its pixel-level polarizer structure, enables the detection of both the amount and angle of polarized light across a scene. Four different angled polarizers (90°, 45°, 135° and 0°) are positioned on each pixel, and every block of four pixels comprises a calculation unit.
“Offering polarization across both area and line scan imaging means greater choice for customers looking to resolve defects that are undetectable with traditional imaging for a growing number of applications,” commented Manny Romero, Senior Product Manager.
