Current State of High-Speed Imaging Technologies & Emerging Scientific Applications

MAGIC is thrilled to announce that Kyle D. Gilroy will be giving a talk on Friday February 16th at 1pm in Wegmans Theater titled Current State of High-Speed Imaging Technologies & Emerging Scientific Applications.

High-speed cameras serve as critical tools widely utilized throughout academic-, industrial-, and government- research centers. Currently, the most popular use is their deployment in scientific applications as measurement devices, where videos are post-processed to extract meaningful information such as kinematics, spectroscopic data, vibrational frequencies, temperature maps, full-field deformation and strain, dynamic refractive index gradients, and many others! In fact, we are currently living during a transitional period where classic single-point contact sensors (based on strain gauges, accelerometers, thermocouples, etc.) are being largely supplanted by full-field non-contact sensing based on high-throughput CMOS sensor technologies (high-speed cameras). This transition has revolutionized data collection and analysis, providing finer temporal and spatial detail with relatively negligible perturbance on the observed experiment. In this talk, I will cover essential concepts in high-speed imaging technology and show examples of emerging high-speed applications and techniques, including but not limited to high-speed object tracking, digital image correlation (DIC), particle image velocimetry (PIV), analog and digital Schlieren, high-throughput inspection, and real-time feed-back loops based on machine vision.


We hope to see you there!
