  1. Infrared Cameras: Advanced Temperature Measurement For Today's Breakthrough Medical Research
    10/28/2016

    The versatility, affordability, and high performance of IR cameras provide a powerful remedy to gaining accurate temperature measurements in medical discoveries. 

  2. Mobile Infrared Scanning — A High-Tech, Alternative To Traditional Bridge Inspection Methods
    10/25/2016

    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 deliminated areas on concrete deck surfaces.

  3. Medical Research With FLIR Thermal Imaging Cameras
    8/23/2016

    Tissue autofluorescence spectroscopy, or the measurement of intrinsic light emissions from biological agents upon excitation, is utilized in a variety of biomedical research for differentiating between diseased and normal tissues. Researchers interested in the correlation between temperature and tissue autofluorescence spectroscopy during surgery are finding their answers with the help of thermal imaging. FLIR offers a scientific camera with the ideal resolution and lens magnification for such research. This application note offers the full story on how researchers used FLIR cameras and ResearchIR software to work to gain a greater understanding of this surgical tool.

  4. FLIR Thermal Cameras Help To Reduce The Invasiveness Of Cochlear Implant Surgery
    8/10/2016

    The surgical placement of Cochlear hearing implants behind the human ear requires a highly trained surgeon, and can result in facial nerve damage, meningitis, tinnitus, infections, cerebrospinal fluid leakage, and potentially more.

  5. The Advantages Of LWIR SLS Thermal Cameras
    6/15/2016

    New Type II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detector materials from FLIR offer shorter integration times, wider temperature ranges, better uniformity, stability, and price than SWIR InSb and LWIR MCT materials, and are much cheaper than current LWIR MCT cameras.

  7. From “Guess” To “Best”: How Infrared Cameras Are Increasing Accuracy And Insight In Product Testing
    5/25/2016

    This article explores how infrared (IR) cameras deliver a major data-gathering advantage over legacy approaches to temperature measurement, an advantage that can prevent costly product failures and safety hazards, providing an immediate and ongoing return on investment.

  8. Evaluating The Increase And Distribution Of Temperature During Dental Drilling Using A Thermal Imaging Camera
    3/28/2016

    In some cases, the rotary speeds from dental drills can cause dangerously high temperatures, which can permanently damage bone tissue as they increase the denaturation of hard tissue proteins. This article discusses research on drilling techniques in a lab setting. 

  9. Next Generation IR Technologies Solve High Speed Automotive Testing Challenges
    3/2/2016

    Non-contact forms of measurement are not fast enough to stop the motion on high speed targets and cannot take accurate temperature measurements. This application note discusses the need for cooled thermal cameras with short exposure times for these types of measurements

  10. Thermal Imaging Cameras Allow Machines To Read Human Emotions
    12/3/2015

    Scientists are researching how machines can understand human emotions through thermal imaging. In order for Artificial Agents (AAs) to set up contingent emotional and psychophysiological interaction with humans, the automatic nervous system (ANS) must be monitored and translated efficiently.
