The id210 is the first photon counter for telecom wavelengths that works at frequencies up to 100MHz, can also operate in free running mode, and does not require cryogenic cooling.
This paper introduces and demonstrates the technique of 'superframing'. The technique of superframing consists of varying the exposure, or integration time of a thermal imaging camera from frame to frame in a cyclic manner and combining the resulting subframes into single superframes with greatly extended temperature ranges, thereby allowing the user to visualize scenes featuring wide temperature differences.
The measurement of luminaires has traditionally been performed with a photometer placed in the far-field, which measures the illuminance from the light source one angle at a time. A near-field goniophotometer exploits the latest advances in imaging photometry and represents a more affordable and flexible option compared with a far-field instrument.
Thermal cameras are today being used in many different ways as more and more people realise the potential of this powerful imaging technology. Thermal cameras made by FLIR play pivotal roles in a wide range of industrial, commercial and government activities in more than 60 countries worldwide.
