Common 'intrusive' testing methods, while not technically destructive, are often messy, time-consuming, and render samples unusable for production. Non-contact testing and evaluation conducted via IR active thermography overcomes these hurdles.
Traditional methods of mapping surface mines have inherent challenges to obtaining data with enough detail to allow effective tactical and strategic decision making. Hyperspectral infrared imaging eliminates the problems.
This white paper will discuss how to establish a simple scene model in the field, how to determine their limitations, and how you can use these models to estimate physical parameters, such as the thermodynamic temperature of the objects being viewed.
Radiometry is the science of studying the transport of energy through radiation. In this article, Telops presents the basics of the principal laws of radiometry as seen through light-sensitive instruments.
Additive manufacturing involves extremely high thermal gradients that can sometimes induce stress and deformation in the materials. High-speed infrared imaging of this direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) process on stainless steel has been used to better understand and visualize these thermal transfers.
Research on different indicators of imminent volcanic eruptions is carried out on an ongoing basis, especially with volcanoes located close to urban areas. This app. note highlights the benefits of using standoff infrared hyperspectral imaging for characterizing volcanic process.
Many types of natural gas from shale formations are odorless, colorless, and highly flammable, and leaks/emanations are important considerations for safety and the environment. This application note illustrates the benefits of using an imager at a site where shale gas leaks unexpectedly happened.
When developing new materials, the characterization of mechanical properties becomes extremely important. This application note covers the process of performing tensile and shear tests on an variety of materials using high-speed and high-definition infrared imaging.
Engineers are continuously looking to improve the efficiency of internal combustion engines (ICEs). This white paper walks through this experiment and investigates the different phases of the combustion cycle using four different spectral filters in order to see the difference in the exhaust fumes.
