A temperature tuned light emitting diode (LED) has several advantages over conventional sources for Fourier transform spectroscopy. The large radiation density of LEDs, concentrated in a small spectral region, is ideal for high resolution Fourier transform spectroscopy where a high signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio is desired. A simple, inexpensive LED source leads to a superior performance at high resolutions exceeding that of a tungsten halogen lamp, in the visible region of spectrum.

    Hyperspectral imaging systems used in plant science or agriculture often have suboptimal signal-to-noise ratio in the blue region (400-500 nm) of the electromagnetic spectrum. Typically there are two principal reasons for this effect, the low sensitivity of the imaging sensor and the low amount...
