Optimizing Workflow For High-Speed Imaging Applications

Today’s advanced high-speed cameras are used to record phenomena that are otherwise not visible to the naked eye by capturing the details of fast-moving events. While the images can be incredible, the high frame rates and pixel resolutions used can generate extreme amounts of data in a short period of time. This makes it imperative to optimize the high-speed imaging workflow for the application at hand.

High-Speed Imaging Uncovers The Invisible With Schlieren Techniques

Scientists use schlieren imaging, a noninvasive testing method, to visualize density gradients within otherwise invisible flows. Although this advanced imaging technique can now deliver detailed images of highly dynamic processes, obtaining high-quality data requires choosing the best high-speed camera for the application and careful optimization of the optical setup.

Capturing Fast-Moving Ferrofluids On The Nanoscale

When you pass a magnet over the surface of ferrofluids, it begins to reach out with its gooey, spikey arms. A team of researchers at Juniata College is using a Phantom high-speed camera to study its unique, magnetic particles that have vast implications for future lab-on-a-chip devices. The camera helps them to see these too-small, too-fast reactions and capture their nanoscale behaviors.

When Lightning And Rods Connect: High-Speed Imaging Brings Understanding

Marcelo Saba is a modern-day Doc Brown — except that instead of capturing lightning to power a DeLorean time machine in Back to the Future, Saba captures lightning with high-speed cameras to not only advance the understanding of how lightning connects with lightning rods, but also provide the field data necessary to improve current lightning protection systems.

Product Video: High-Speed, High-Resolution Camera

Chris Kerr introduces the brand new Phantom v2640, the world’s fastest 4Mpx camera, with exceptional throughput of 26 Gpx/sec, and 6,600 fps at full resolution of 2048 x 1952.
