Thermal Cameras White Papers

  1. The Evaluation Of Increase And Distribution Of Temperature During The Dental Drilling Using A Thermal Imaging Camera

    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. By Joanna Lubieniecka, M. Sc. Eng., Jerzy Lukasiewicz, M. Sc. Eng., Joanna Bozyk, MDS, and Janusz Kleinrok, DMD

  2. Coat Of Many Colors: Cases In Equine Thermal Imaging

    Infrared cameras have improved, procedures have been standardized, and veterinarians have become familiar with interpretation of the images. By Joanna L. Robson, DVM

  3. Using Thermal Mapping At The Data Center

    Cooling the servers in data centers efficiently is critical to increasing IT reliability, maintaining high performance, and reducing electrical usage. This article discusses the reasoning behind using infrared thermography (IRT) to commission and monitor data centers’ cooling systems.

  4. Thermal Imaging Of Power MOSFETs Under Thermal Runaway Conditions

    Using a thermal camera and an oscilloscope to look at the voltage and current internal to the MOSFET, we can gain an understanding of how a hot spot develops on the surface of the MOSFET. By Jack Shue and Henning Leidecker

  5. Effects Of Heat On Firearm Barrels

    The purpose of this study is to examine the advantage of using a thermal imaging system to capture the effects of heat on gun barrels. The thermal imaging camera will provide such data as the temperatures reached and the distribution of heat along the barrel. By Matthew Iannone, FLIR Systems, Inc.

  6. NDT In Composite Materials With Flash, Transient, And Lockin Thermography

    Composites are now used in everything from aircraft to prosthetics. By Markus Tarin and Ralph Rotolante

  7. Electroluminescence And Thermal Imaging Applications In The Photovoltaic Industry
    Quality control is of the utmost importance for any high-tech industry. The complexity of the processes that we are dealing with — the considerable amount of variables that are to be monitorized and controlled — are good reasons to keep the production process under very tight control. By Nuno Pereira, Lógica E.M. - Photovoltaic Laboratory
