Precision Of FLEET Velocimetry Using High-Speed CMOS Camera Systems
By Christopher J. Peters (Princeton University), et al.

Femtosecond laser electronic excitation tagging (FLEET) is an optical measurement technique that permits quantitative velocimetry of unseeded air or nitrogen using a single laser and a single camera. This paper seeks to determine the fundamental precision of the FLEET technique using high-speed complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) cameras. 

Spotlight On Aviation/Aerospace Applications
High-Resolution InGaAs And Vis-InGaAs SWIR Area Cameras

The large format 640 x 512-pixel 640SDV-1.7RT InGaAs room-temperature solid state camera allows users to capture images in the shortwave infrared (SWIR) range of 0.9 to 1.7 µm, and the SU640SDV Vis- 1.7RT expands the range to the visible, from 0.4 to 1.7 μm.

Aviation Lighting

The perfect lighting sets the atmosphere of any aircraft cabin. SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging aims to use natural lighting with different intensities and color shades to create a perfect lighting mix with an unmatched overall impression and atmosphere.

High-Speed Cameras Help Digital Image Correlation Show Its Strength

Digital image correlation (DIC) is an optical measurement technique that allows full-field analysis of a material’s or structure’s deformation, displacement, and strain. This paper discusses how high-speed cameras and various software packages are helping DIC expand into new applications.

Can Your Laser Micro Drilling System Do All This?

The recent introduction of 5-axis laser micro drill system expands the limits of micrometer range drilling. Canon’s unique technology creates flexible hole shapes and wider angles at significantly higher processing speeds. Stent production, injector hole drilling and micromachining will benefit.

Introduction To Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs)

Silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) are radiation detectors designed with extremely high sensitivity, high efficiency, and very low time jitter. The technology is based on reversed biased p/n diodes, making them capable of direct light detection ranging from near ultraviolet to near infrared.

The Relationship Between Pixel Size And Sensitivity

PCO-TECH looks to debunk the myth that “large pixel image sensors are always more sensitive than small pixel sensors.” This article describes, in detail, the relationship between an image sensor’s pixel size and its sensitivity, and how each defines the quality of an image.

Design Challenges And Considerations For Developing High-Definition Infrared Cameras

There are unique challenges involved in bringing infrared cameras up to the high-definition standards we’ve all grown accustomed to for cameras in the visible range. Chris Johnston with Sierra-Olympic Technologies spent a few minutes to speak about these challenges. Watch the video to learn more about working with unique sensor technology, the importance of selecting the right lens, output considerations as they relate to current HD display standards, and what the camera will be ultimately used for.
