    Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterProfessional


    Imaging Spectroscopy is the study of light as a function of spatial distribution and wavelength that has been transmitted, emitted, reflected or scattered from an object. This allows us to derive information about the spatial relation of the chemistry of the object. Imaging spectroscopy is suited for the following tasks: • Quality control: detection of latent defects in agri-products, e.g. vegetables and fruit. • Quantification of compounds: carotenes, proteins, sugars, moisture etc. In this poster the following two applications are discussed: 1) Measuring of compounds in tomatoes and 2) Detection and classification of latent defects in French Fries
