Thermal imaging cameras can be utilized as powerful tools for semiconductor failure analysis. This application note discusses the value and effectiveness of using thermal lock-in when conducting semiconductor inspections.
Electronic products used in aerospace and other research applications have two key requirements: high performance and the reliability to withstand intense environments. To attain that performance, electronics designers often use small parts and routinely push them to their limits.
This white paper addresses the general need for laser beam profile analysis, describes laser beam analysis instruments, and provides an overview of laser applications, in particular for infrared wavelengths.
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.
New composite materials such as carbon are being used more frequently in many markets such as automotive, aircraft, and railway manufacturing. These materials can offer benefits for the design and production of vehicles including higher performance levels or lighter weights, but also come with challenges in terms of manufacturing, inspection, and maintenance. Researchers at the Laboratory for Materials and Joining Technology (LWF) are focusing on the development of joining techniques for these composite materials.
Tissue autofluorescence spectroscopy is utilized in a variety of biomedical research for differentiating between diseased and normal tissues. This app note discusses how researchers used FLIR cameras and ResearchIR software to work to gain a greater understanding of this surgical tool.
Thermal imaging is simply made up of a thermal scene, a lens, a sensor, and a display. But how do you focus heat? What kind of sensor detects heat, and how do you display it? This article offers a short Infrared 101 overview, and covers fundamental terms and concepts of thermal imaging.
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.
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.
