Abstract
In October 2001 we started to collect hyperspectral face images covering the spectral range from 450nm to 1100 nm. To date the database contains 54 diverse faces at multiple sessions over a period of about two months. The data was obtained using a prototype (limited performance) CMU-developed spectropolarimetric camera. We present some experimental results on the spectral face data. The unprocessed HID data is available upon permission. Recently we have developed a more sensitive next generation camera (Gen 2) that expands our data collection capabilities.
