    Laser Illumination For High-Speed Imaging

    An incorrect or poorly lit subject affects the image, regardless of the quality of a camera system. Therefore the illumination source is just as important as the camera's resolution and sensitivity. For high-speed imaging applications, a wide range of light sources can be utilized. See how a laser can be used for illumination in these four high speed imaging application examples.

    Using A Photron FASTCAM Camera For Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV)

    Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV) can be extremely useful for the analysis of turbulent flow, transient flow, micro flow, and 3D volumetric flow studies within automotive, aerospace, bio-tech/medical, marine propulsion, electronics, and scientific research industries. Photron presents a technique using high speed FASTCAM cameras to obtain the time dependent velocity distributions in a Field-Of-View (FOV) of single and multi-phase flows which are very fast, turbulent, and complex.

  • Shadowgraphy Imaging Technique
    Shadowgraphy Imaging Technique

    Using the backlight/shadowgraphy imaging technique can provide high contrast object images for a better understanding of an object's shape or size. This technique shines a light towards a camera in order to create a white image. An object is then passed between the light source and the camera which creates a dark area on the image, or a shadow. This application note looks further into this imaging method, and walks through its optical setup and its application uses.
