  • Volcanic Eruption Observations From An Elevated Point Of Stromboli Using Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging
    Volcanic Eruption Observations From An Elevated Point Of Stromboli Using Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging

    Scientific research on different indicators of imminent volcanic eruptions is carried out on an ongoing basis, especially with volcanoes that are located close to urban areas. Remote sensing technologies are the preferred method of investigation due to the hazardous and sometimes unpredictable behavior of these volcanoes. The Telops Hyper-Cam has established itself as a reference tool for investigating clouds over large distances, and has illustrated its capabilities by imaging the Stromboli volcano, well known for its periodic eruptions of small magnitude containing various proportions of ash, lava, and gases. This application note highlights the benefits of using standoff infrared hyperspectral imaging for characterizing volcanic process.

  • Direct Imaging Of Shale Gas Leaks Using Passive Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging
    Direct Imaging Of Shale Gas Leaks Using Passive Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging

    Many types of natural gas from shale formations, including methane (CH4), are odorless, colorless, highly flammable, and leaks/emanations are important considerations for safety and the environment. Telops has recently launched the Hyper-Cam Methane, a field-deployable thermal infrared hyperspectral camera specially tuned for detecting methane infrared spectral features under ambient conditions and over large distances. This application note illustrates the benefits of using this imager a site where shale gas leaks unexpectedly happened during a geological survey near the Enfant-Jesus hospital in Quebec City, Canada, during December 2014.

    Infrared Imaging For Material Characterization In Fracture Mechanics Experiments

    When developing new materials, the characterization of mechanical properties becomes extremely important. Many different measurements as well as the nature of the material to be characterized dictate what parameters are needed and to what extent. Among the challenges encountered during the characterization of a material’s thermal patterns is the need for both high spatial and temporal resolution. Infrared imaging provides information about surface temperature that can be attributed to the stress response of the material and breaking of chemical bonds. This application note covers the process of performing tensile and shear tests on an variety of materials using high-speed and high-definition infrared imaging.

    High-Speed Infrared Imaging For Analysis Of A Diesel Engine Supplied With Premixed Methane-Air Charge

    Engineers are continuously looking to improve the efficiency of internal combustion engines (ICEs) in areas such as lowering fuel consumption and reducing soot formation. Among the strategies used to improve combustion efficiency is the use of premixed air-methane charge in place of the use of air. In order to observe and analyze this technique, an optical engine is used with high-speed infrared imaging. This white paper walks through this experiment and investigates the different phases of the combustion cycle using four different spectral filters in order to see the difference in the exhaust fumes.

  • Non-Destructive Testing Of Mid-IR Optical Fiber Using Infrared Imaging
    Non-Destructive Testing Of Mid-IR Optical Fiber Using Infrared Imaging

    Some materials such as the fluoride and chalcogenide glasses used in the manufacture of optical fiber lasers cannot have any defects in order for the laser system to be efficient. This can be difficult because most existing quality control techniques are not compatible to these materials. To address this problem, a novel non-destructive testing (NDT) methodology has been developed based on infrared imaging. This application note shows how infrared imaging can be used to carry out NDT of optical fiber integrity. The methodology allows the screening of tens of meters in just a few seconds.
