  1. Advantages Of LWIR SLS Thermal Cameras

    The integration of Type II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detectors into commercially available thermal cameras in recent years has allowed researchers and scientists to solve several of the most difficult temperature measurement challenges. In this webinar FLIR will discuss how infrared cameras with cooled LWIR SLS detectors deliver significant improvements in speed, temperature range, uniformity, and stability while providing examples of their performance benefits when used is various high speed thermal measurement applications.

  2. Measurements At The Speed Of Light

    Measuring the thermal signatures of rockets exploding or aircraft in flight occur at high speeds. Understanding the factors that go into making those measurements will help users determine if a camera is suited for the job.

  3. FLIR T500-Series Macro Mode: Single-Lens Solution For Imaging Small Targets

    Thermal cameras are used throughout many stages of R&D and quality assurance. Electronics inspection is one of the most common applications for thermal imaging, which typically involves finding hot spots on printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) and ensuring that various components are working within their design limits.

  4. What To Consider When Selecting An IR Camera For Military Test Range Applications

    Thermal cameras can allow many types of infrared measurements on the military test range. Here are some of the factors you should keep in mind when purchasing an IR camera.

  5. Ultra-High-Speed Thermography

    Recent advances in IR camera technologies, such as fast camera detector readouts and high performance electronics, allow high-speed imagery. These new improvements in high-end commercial R&D camera technologies have overcome challenges and permit exploration of the many benefits of high-speed IR camera technology. This article is part 5 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses the use of ultra-high-speed thermography with IR cameras.

  6. Filters Extend IR Camera Usefulness

    Materials that are transparent or opaque to IR wavelengths present problems in non-contact temperature measurements with an IR camera. In some cases, an IR filter can be placed in the camera’s optical path to overcome these problems. This article is part 4 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses how filters can be used to extend IR camera usefulness.

  7. Getting The Most From Your IR Camera

    Understanding IR camera calibration and corrections help ensure accurate temperature measurements and thermographic mapping. This article is part 3 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses how to get the most out of using your IR camera.

  8. IR Detectors For Thermographic Imaging

    Thermographic imaging is accomplished with a camera that converts infrared radiation (IR) into a visual image that depicts temperature variations across an object or scene. The main IR camera components are a lens, a detector in the form of a focal plane array (FPA), possibly a cooler for the detector, and the electronics and software for processing and displaying images. This article is part 2 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses the use of IR detectors in thermographic imaging.

  9. IR Thermography – How It Works

    Although infrared radiation (IR) is not detectable by the human eye, an IR camera can convert it to a visual image that depicts thermal variations across an object or scene. Thermography is a type of imaging that is accomplished with an IR camera calibrated to display temperature values across an object or scene, and allows for non-contact measurements of an object’s temperature. This article is part 1 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses how thermography works.

  10. Infrared Camera Accuracy And Uncertainty In Plain Language

    Trusting measurements from instruments can be difficult without a clear understanding of how the sensitivity and accuracy is derived. Many times, infrared camera measurement accuracy is confusing and can involve complex terms and jargon that may be misleading.
