    Camera Offers Single-Shot, Real-Time, Ultrafast Imaging of Transparent Objects

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A camera developed at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) uses picosecond imaging technology to take photographs and videos of transparent objects at speeds of up to 1 trillion frames per second. Called phase-sensitive compressed ultrafast photography (pCUP), this camera technology can also take video of shockwaves and other ephemera.

    The new camera combines the contrast of dark field microscopy with the speed and the sequence depth of compressed ultrafast photography (CUP), a high-speed photography system previously developed by professor Lihong Wang and his team. Phase-contrast microscopy allows better imaging of objects like cells, which are mostly transparent. “What we’ve done is to adapt standard…
