About the book

Hyperspectral imaging is a spectroscopic imaging technique, which can generate either single or a time series of data cubes to yield insight into the spatial distribution of constitutive components in a spatial domain. Hence, the methodology can be used in multiple applications such as probing cellular processes in live cells, developing multiple biomedical imaging modalities, material characterizations, remote sensing, etc. Hyperspectral imaging can also take advantage of deep learning algorithms to retrieve valuable information from high-dimensional data in real-time. It is worth emphasizing that hyperspectral imaging is not limited to visible light. With other available excitation sources such as X-ray, electrons, etc. new hyperspectral imaging modalities can be extended to nanometer scales.

This book intends to bring together diverse research areas of hyperspectral imaging. We hope to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in this fascinating and important field and make this book project a useful platform to allow all those working in hyperspectral imaging to be benefited from the knowledge of widely different fields.

Expected publication date: December 3rd 2022

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

About the editor

Jung Huang

National Chiao Tung University

Jung Y. Huang received his Ph.D. in 1988 from the Applied and Engineering Physics of Cornell University. He was a full professor and investigator in the Department of Photonics and T.K.B. Research Center for Photonics, Chiao Tung University, Taiwan. His research interests focus on the development of optical probes for unraveling cellular processes in live cells and characterizing functional properties of nanostructured materials. He had been an editorial board member of the Advances in Optoelectronics for twelve years, and a reviewer for about twenty scientific journals in optics, chemistry, and material sciences. He has co-authored more than a hundred publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals, five book chapters, and holds several patents in laser techniques, solar cells, and hyperspectral imaging.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nika Karamatic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
