Temperature Measurement of High-Speed Phenomena

Specialised Imaging has announced that it is developing the capability on its SIM Ultra Fast Framing Camera to precisely measure the temperature at different points in a high-speed event.

Capable of capturing up to 32 images at 1 billion frames per second the SIM ultra fast framing camera is proven to be able to capture visual data from even the most fleeting of phenomena. Unique technology enables SIM ultra fast framing cameras to simultaneously capture images on different selected channels. By fitting each optical channel with wavelength filters (400-900nm) - software will enable the SIM camera to combine 2 images from 2 different wavelengths to give a precise temperature reading from selected points in the event under study.

Unlike traditional ultra fast framing cameras the optical design of SIM cameras provide the choice of up to 16 separate optical channels without comprising performance or image quality. Effects such as parallax and shading, inherent in other designs, are eliminated and the high spatial resolution (> 50 lp/mm) is the same from frame to frame and in both axes. Individual ultra-high resolution intensified CCD detectors, controlled by state-of-the-art electronics, offer almost infinite control over gain and exposure allowing experimenters researchers total freedom to capture images of even the most difficult transient phenomena. An integral TFT monitor allows users to ''see what the camera sees'' in real-time, thus allowing users to easily optimise focus and lighting to achieve spectacular results.

Specialised Imaging is a knowledgeable, dynamic company focused upon design, manufacture, service and supply of ultra high-speed imaging systems and components for industrial, defence and scientific applications. The company''s continuing policy is to invest in the development of innovative imaging solutions, incorporate the latest technological advances and use improved components wherever possible. A total commitment to quality and a thorough understanding of applications are held as the keys to the future.
