Abstract

We present a method for multispectral imaging. This method uses color CCD cameras with a multiple-bandpass filter, which modifies the spectral response of the cameras used and enables concurrent acquisition of multiple images at defined spectral bands. We experimentally demonstrate methodological feasibility using two color CCD cameras and a polychroic mirror to simultaneously capture eight spectral bands. We discuss how the method developed is well suited for multispectral applications of transient phenomena or for real-time measurements.
