  1. Water Balloon Burst!
    7/15/2016

    A water balloon plus a sharp object equals a splash of a visual effect! Take it all in with the high speed infrared capabilities of the X6900sc.

  2. High Speed Infrared Imaging
    7/15/2016

    If you need to stop motion on fast-moving targets or targets that heat and cool rapidly, FLIR’s high speed thermal cameras offer the fast frame rates and integration you need. FLIR’s newest camera, the X6900sc, can record 1000 fps of high speed data at full 640 x 512 resolution – meaning researchers can perform dynamic analysis of jet engine turbine blades, supersonic projectiles, explosions, and more, without losing areas of the frame to windowing.

  3. Laser Measurement Best Practices: Thermal Offset Due To Sensor Heating
    7/6/2016

    Thermal sensors are designed to measure the power of lasers according to their heat measurements. In some cases, the sensor may be heated due to environmental causes and result in an incorrect laser power measurement. This video provides a set of best practices to assume in order to get the most accurate thermal sensor readings every time.

  4. Shadowscopy Technique Part 1
    6/20/2016

    This video demonstrates the shadowscopy technique which collimates light in the region of interest with camera focused on the object.

  5. Shadowscopy Technique Part 2
    6/20/2016

    This video is the second part of the demonstration of the shadowscopy technique which collimates light in the region of interest with camera focused on the object.

  6. Vision Research Video Gallery
    4/26/2016

    This video gallery presents a wide variety of video demonstrations using the high-speed digital cameras from Vision Research for many different markets including ballistics, scientific, industrial, and automotive.

  7. Co-alignment Of Visible, NIR, And IR Laser Beams
    4/22/2016

    Eric Craven with Ophir Photonics provided us with a tutorial at DCS 2016 on how to co-align visible, near-infrared, and infrared laser beams through the use of a pyroelectric camera array coupled with beam profiling software.

  8. Achieving HD, Full Color Video In Low Light
    4/21/2016

    On the last day of SPIE’s 2016 DCS exhibition in Baltimore, Kevin Fogarty with Canon showed us a 19 micron pixel pitch sensor that can achieve a full color and high definition image in extremely low light environments.

  9. Clear The Air: Challenges In MWIR Optical Sensing
    4/21/2016

    Jason Palidwar with Iridian Spectral Technologies spent some time with us on the last day of SPIE’s 2016 DCS exhibition to talk about the challenges encountered in the mid-wave spectrum and how his company has worked around them.

  10. An Intro To Advanced Hyperspectral Imaging
    4/21/2016

    Hyperspectral imaging technology has advanced significantly in the last 50 years, and Greg Staples with Bayspec talked with us for a few minutes at the 2016 SPIE DCS exhibition about how it has changed.
