FLIR offers a scientific camera with the ...  Continue Reading...
Thermal Imaging: How It Works Thermal Imaging has been around for nearly a quarter of a century, and has grown considerably in the capability of providing scientists with heat radiation images that would normally be invisible to the naked eye. 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...  Continue Reading...
Infrared Imaging For Material Characterization In Fracture Mechanics Experiments
Infrared Imaging For Material Characterization In Fracture Mechanics Experiments When developing new materials, the characterization of mechanical properties becomes extremely important. Many different measurements as well as the nature of the material to be characterized dictate what parameters are needed and to what extent. Among the challenges encountered during the characterization of a material’s thermal patterns is the need for both high spatial and temporal resolution. Infrared imaging provides information about ...  Continue Reading...
FLIR Thermal Cameras Help To Reduce The Invasiveness Of Cochlear Implant Surgery
FLIR Thermal Cameras Help To Reduce The Invasiveness Of Cochlear Implant Surgery 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. A collaboration between the Swiss ARTORG Center of Biomedical Engineering Research and the Institute of Surgical Technologies and Biomechanics of the University of Bern has resulted in an image-guided surgical robot...  Continue Reading...
SWIR And The U-2 The U-2 spy plane is the leading reconnaissance platform for the United States with the ability to see at great lengths inside national borders with a closed airspace. The camera used in today’s U-2, SYERS, uses electronic sensors to see in both the mid-wave infrared (MWIR) band (thermal energy) and the short wave infrared (SWIR) band (reflected light). It is the SWIR band that gives the SYERS its remarkable atmospheric penetration...  Continue Reading...
