  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Infrared R&D Handbook
    6/1/2016

    This handbook provides a comprehensive guide for using infrared imaging technology in the research and development industry.

  4. 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.

  5. 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. 

  6. 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

  7. 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. 

  8. High-Speed Thermal Cameras: The Need For Speed
    9/15/2015

    The two types of thermal cameras include the cooled photon-counting cameras, and the uncooled microbolometer-based cameras. This application note discusses the different features and uses of these cameras, as well as providing real life examples of their fast and reliable measurement capabilities.

  9. With Thermal Cameras, Image Matters
    8/26/2015

    Not all thermal security cameras are created equal. If and when professionals look to purchase a thermal imaging camera, there are a whole set of specifications and performance parameters that may be unfamiliar. Instead of basing a decision on the analysis of specifications, take time to see the image quality for yourself, because image quality matters. This case study discusses how a thermal imaging camera’s resolution is typically measured, and why it is important to know for making the right thermal camera choice.

  10. Thermal Security Cameras Protect The Home Turf
    8/25/2015

    As BYU finished a $1M+ renovation to its football field, questions arose as to how it would be secured. This case study discusses how Brigham Young University benefitted from installing FLIR’s thermal security cameras into its security systems.
