  1. The Road Ahead With Alex Roy
    10/17/2018

    Automotive journalist, Alex Roy, talks about thermal cameras in autonomous driving with Stuart Klapper from Veoneer and Paul Clayton from FLIR Systems.

  2. Understanding Intensified sCMOS Imaging
    10/17/2018

    Image intensifiers are used to increase the intensity of available light in a system to enable better image reproduction in low light environments. However, the question remains as to if this technology is necessary in light of vast advancements in camera technologies. This white paper investigates the challenges that necessitate the application of image intensification technologies and covers a variety of methods, including the next generation of intensified imaging.

  3. Why Is A Backside Illuminated Sensor More Sensitive Than A Front Side Illuminated Sensor?
    10/16/2018

    Backside illuminated image sensors have fewer obstacles in the pathway of the incoming light as it reaches the volume of the pixel, where the conversion to charge carriers takes place. As a result, backside illuminated CMOS image sensors are able to convert more of the light into charge carriers, resulting in larger signals and better images.

  4. Why Are There Special Interfaces For The Transmission Of Image Data?
    10/16/2018

    The amount of image data that must be transferred to computers for storage and processing is continuously increasing in all fields of application. The demand for fast, reliable data transfer increases in turn. This white paper discusses the progression of camera interfaces, and how they are continuously improved to enable reliable streaming data transfer from the camera to the computer.

  5. What Is All The Hype About Resolution And Mega Pixels Anyway?
    10/16/2018

    Resolution, in the context of an image sensor, describes the total number of pixels utilized to create an image. The question is then why does pixel count matter? This white paper discusses the importance of resolution and its relevance in camera systems with image sensors.

  7. DNA-PAINT: A Super-Resolution Microscopy Technique
    10/16/2018

    Researchers have used super-resolution techniques to perform imaging below the classical diffraction-limit of light with extraordinary precision. The recently introduced super-resolution method DNA-PAINT is based on transient DNA-DNA interactions. This white paper discusses the DNA-PAINT microscopy technique and how sCMOS cameras are well suited for these kinds of measurements.
