Sci­en­tists make fastest cam­era

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Sci­en­tists have de­vel­oped the world’s fastest cam­era, ca­pa­ble of cap­tur­ing 10 tril­lion frames per sec­ond, mak­ing it pos­si­ble to see phe­nom­ena in ex­tremely slow mo­tion, like freez­ing time. The study pub­lished on Thurs­day in the jour­nal Light: Science & Ap­pli­ca­tions showed that the new sys­tem based on a fem­tosec­ond streak cam­era in­cor­po­rated a data ac­qui­si­tion type used in ap­pli­ca­tions such as to­mog­ra­phy. “We knew that by us­ing only a fem­tosec­ond streak cam­era, the im­age qual­ity would be limited,” said Wang Li­hong, pro­fes­sor of me­dial en­gi­neer­ing and elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer­ing at Cal­tech.
