  1. 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

  2. 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. 

  3. High Speed Thermal Cameras – The Need For Speed
    9/15/2015

    The traditional method of measuring heat with thermocouples or spot parameters doesn’t always provide the complete picture of a device’s thermal properties. However, infrared cameras are able to capture thousands of high-speed, highly accurate thermal measurements, and generate compelling data for important research. 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.

  4. 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.

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

    As Brigham Young University finished over $1 million worth of renovation to their football field, questions arose as to how they would secure it at all hours of the day, especially after dark. During the process of finding which security technology to use, they temporarily installed a thermal security camera from FLIR Systems on a tripod in the stadium press box. This helped them resolve three trespasses within the first week alone. This case study discusses how Brigham Young University benefitted from installing FLIR’s thermal security cameras into their security systems.

  6. Cooled vs. Uncooled Thermal Imaging
    4/29/2015

    Thermal imaging cameras have been used by scientists, researchers and R&D specialists for many years in a variety of applications.This application note describes the difference between cooled and uncooled thermal imaging cameras, and when to use them in applications such as industrial R&D, academics and research, and defense and aerospace.

  7. Using Thermal Imaging To Detect Small Nerve Fiber Dysfunction
    1/21/2015

    While the dysfunction of large nerve fibers can be assessed using standard neurological examination and electromyography (EMG), currently no noninvasive techniques exist to detect and quantify small fiber dysfunction.

  8. Using Thermal Imaging For Companion Diagnostics
    1/14/2015

    This application note describes how researchers from the clinical research center of Charité Berlin use a thermal imaging camera from FLIR to analyze and objectify the body’s response to various allergens.

  9. High Speed Infrared Imaging And The Ballistics Of 'Punkin Chunkin'
    3/14/2013

    In an effort to improve the performance of their massive 120 foot pneumatic air cannon at the 2012 World Punkin Chunkin Championship (WCPC), American Chunker team captain Brian Labrie invited FLIR Systems’ infrared experts David Bursell and Ron Lucier to join his diverse crew of chunkin’-crazed engineers, scientists, and fabricators. With the addition of a high speed, high resolution MWIR infrared camera, the team was able to use thermal analysis of pumpkin ballistics to improve design and performance as they prepared for the event.

  10. The Evaluation Of Increase And Distribution Of Temperature During The Dental Drilling Using A Thermal Imaging Camera
    2/17/2012

    This paper discusses the use of infrared technology to study the optimal method for post space preparation of teeth including how long to drill, the type and size of dental drill used, and the type of cooling used.
