  1. High-Speed 2D Polarization Camera For Measurement Of Stress In Transparent And Semi-Transparent Materials And Fluids

    High-speed cameras have become an established tool in the modern workplace. Their ability to record at hundreds or thousands of frames per second for subsequent slow motion replay and analysis has made them an important tool for applications such as ballistics, materials testing, automotive safety testing, and fluidics. Their capabilities are significantly increased when they are coupled with innovative non-contact measurement techniques such as digital image correlation (DIC) to provide invaluable information as to what is occurring on the surface of a solid, or through particle image velocimetry (PIV) in a seeded fluid or gaseous flows. 

  2. Versatile High Performance High-Speed Camera System

    Photron USA, Inc. of San Diego has launched a new versatile, high performance high-speed camera system.
