The Advantages Of LWIR SLS Thermal Cameras

New Type II Strained Layer Superlattice detector materials from FLIR may be a high performance, lower cost solution for researchers. By offering shorter integration times, wider temperature ranges, better uniformity, stability, and price, these materials are a solution to consider over MWIR InSb and LWIR MCT materials, and are cheaper than current LWIR MCT cameras.

Infrared Cameras: Advanced Temperature Measurement For Today’s Breakthrough Medical Research

The versatility, affordability, and high performance of IR cameras provide a powerful remedy to gaining accurate temperature measurements in medical discoveries. Embracing these increasingly nimble measurement tools, the medical research community is bringing IR cameras to the forefront of discovery and insight, and unlocking tomorrow’s breakthrough treatments.

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. This advantage can prevent costly product failures and safety hazards, providing an immediate and ongoing return on investment.

Mobile Infrared Scanning — A High-Tech Alternative To Traditional Bridge Inspection Methods

Thousands of bridges throughout the United States are structurally deficient and will require maintenance, repair, or replacement at an estimated total cost of $20.5 billion annually over the next 12 years. Identifying structural deficiencies in concrete bridges through traditional methods can be time consuming, and unsafe for both divers and inspectors. A high-tech alternative uses a truck-mounted infrared camera to pinpoint delaminated areas on concrete deck surfaces.

Thermal Cameras Help Reduce Invasiveness Of Cochlear Implant Surgery

The surgical placement of Cochlear hearing implants requires a highly trained surgeon, and can result in facial nerve damage, meningitis, tinnitus, infections, cerebrospinal fluid leakage, and potentially more. A collaboration between the Swiss ARTORG Center of Biomedical Engineering Research and the Institute of Surgical Technologies and Biomechanics of the University of Bern has resulted in an image-guided surgical robot system that offers a minimally invasive and safer alternative.
