Hot Topic: The Promise, Advantages, And Challenges Of High-Speed Infrared Cameras

Thermally characterizing high-speed targets is a challenging task, one that is difficult to undertake with traditional forms of temperature measurement. This Q&A details how next-generation high-speed IR cameras are up to this challenge, pointing out their functions, benefits, and limitations.

The Advantages Of LWIR SLS Thermal Cameras

New Type II strained layer superlattice (SLS) detector materials may be the high-performance, lower cost solution researchers are looking for. By offering shorter integration times, wider temperature ranges, better uniformity, stability, and price, these materials are an ideal solution to consider over MWIR InSb and LWIR MCT materials, and are less expensive than most current LWIR MCT cameras.

From “Guess” To “Best”: How Infrared Cameras Are Increasing Accuracy And Insight In Product Testing

This article explores how infrared (IR) cameras deliver a major data-gathering advantage over legacy approaches to temperature measurement, which can help prevent costly product failures and safety hazards, while providing an immediate and ongoing return on investment.

Thermal Imaging Cameras Allow Machines To Read Human Emotions

Scientists are researching how machines can understand human emotions through thermal imaging. In order for artificial agents (AAs) to set up contingent emotional and psychophysiological interaction with humans, the automatic nervous system (ANS) must be monitored and translated efficiently. 

Infrared R&D Handbook

Although infrared radiation (IR) is not detectable by the human eye, an IR camera can convert it to a visual image that depicts thermal variations across an object or scene. This handbook provides a comprehensive guide for using infrared imaging technology in the research and development industry.
