Different Infrared:

Division name Abbreviation Wavelength Frequency Photon energy Temperature[i] Characteristics
Near-infrared NIR, IR-A DIN 0.75–1.4 μm 214–400 THz 886–1653 meV 3,864–2,070 K (3,591–1,797 °C) Defined by water absorption,[clarification needed] and commonly used in fiber optic telecommunication because of low attenuation losses in the SiO2 glass (silica) medium. Image intensifiers are sensitive to this area of the spectrum; examples include night vision devices such as night vision goggles. Near-infrared spectroscopy is another common application.
Short-wavelength infrared SWIR, IR-B DIN 1.4–3 μm 100–214 THz 413–886 meV 2,070–966 K (1,797–693 °C) Water absorption increases significantly at 1450 nm. The 1530 to 1560 nm range is the dominant spectral region for long-distance telecommunications.
Mid-wavelength infrared MWIR, IR-C DIN; MidIR.[15] Also called intermediate infrared (IIR) 3–8 μm 37–100 THz 155–413 meV 966–362 K (693–89 °C) In guided missile technology the 3–5 μm portion of this band is the atmospheric window in which the homing heads of passive IR ‘heat seeking’ missiles are designed to work, homing on to the Infrared signature of the target aircraft, typically the jet engine exhaust plume. This region is also known as thermal infrared.
Long-wavelength infrared LWIR, IR-C DIN 8–15 μm 20–37 THz 83–155 meV 362–193 K (89 – −80 °C) The “thermal imaging” region, in which sensors can obtain a completely passive image of objects only slightly higher in temperature than room temperature - for example, the human body - based on thermal emissions only and requiring no illumination such as the sun, moon, or infrared illuminator. This region is also called the “thermal infrared”.
Far infrared FIR 15–1000 μm 0.3–20 THz 1.2–83 meV 193–3 K (−80.15 – −270.15 °C) (see also far-infrared laser and far infrared)

    NUS hyperspectral images database: 52 Outdoor Scene, 35 Indoor Scene, 33 Individual Fruit Scene, 11 Group Fruit Scene, 13 Real vs Fake Fruit Scene, 44 color Charts & Patches Scene.

It consists of various indoor and outdoor scenes taken with a SPECIM hyperspectral camera and multiple consumer cameras. For consumer cameras, camera-specific RAW format that is free of any manipulation, is available. For easier classification, this hyperspectral camera dataset has been categorized into the following categories:

Additionally, our spectral data can be visualized using the professional software by Scyllarus Matlab/C++ toolbox.

  5. Bristol Hyperspectral Images Database [1995]

    Visible Range MSI

    The database consists of 29 scenes, each composed by 31 spectrally filtered images (256 x 256 x 256 grey levels). Each scene has been compressed (zipped) and can be downloaded separately by clicking on the corresponding picture. Please bear in mind that all individual images have a 32 bytes header. To download the whole database at once, just click here.

    There is some code and miscellaneous files here (these need to be run in order to make use of the images as physical measurements). A more complete description on how the images were gathered and some issues on the camera’s technicalities can be found here.

  6. Harvard Real-World Hyperspectral Images [2011]

    Visible Range MSI: 420nm to 720nm

    The camera uses an integrated liquid crystal tunable filter and is capable of acquiring a hyperspectral image by sequentially tuning the filter through a series of 31 narrow wavelength bands, each with approximately 10nm bandwidth and centered at steps of 10nm from 420nm to 720nm.

    The captured dataset includes images of both indoor and outdoor scenes featuring a diversity of objects, materials and scale.

    This is a database of 50 hyperspectral images of indoor and outdoor scenes under daylight illumination, and an additional 25 images under artificial and mixed illumination. The images were captured using a commercial hyperspectral camera (Nuance FX, CRI Inc) with an integrated liquid crystal tunable filter capable of acquiring a hyperspectral image by sequentially tuning the filter through a series of thirty-one narrow wavelength bands, each with approximately 10nm bandwidth and centered at steps of 10nm from 420nm to 720nm. The camera is equipped with an apo-chromatic lens and the images were captured with the smallest viable aperture setting, thus largely avoiding chromatic aberration. All the images are of static scenes, with labels to mask out regions with movement during exposure.

    This database is available for non-commercial research use. The data is available as a series of MATLAB .mat files (one for each image) containing both the images data and masks. Since the size of the download is large (around 5.5 + 2.2 GB), we ask that you send an e-mail to the authors at ayanc[at]eecs[dot]harvard[dot]edu for the download link. If you use this data in an academic publication, kindly cite the following paper:

  7. UAE multispectral image database

    Visible Range MSI: 400nm to 700nm

    Wavelength range from 400nm to 700nm at 10nm steps (31 samples). The image matrix for each object is 31xWIDTHxHEIGHT. The images have been captured in a VeriVide viewing booth with a black cloth background under CIE illuminant D75. Each image has been captured twice: once with a white tile and once without. The illuminant has been estimated from the white tile and the spectral data divided by this estimate, in order to arrive at reflectance measurements. The images below are displayed sRGB values rendered under a neutral daylight (D65).
