Experience the World’s Fastest Visible and Thermal Cameras
October 26, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
12:00 PM: Seminar
1:00 – 3:00 PM: Live Demos & Pizza
Location: Brimacombe 311
This showcase will provide an overview of High Speed & Thermal Imaging, with an introduction to the factors that need to be considered for a successful set up and highlight latest advances. The presentation will discuss the different sensor architectures and how those impact the results. It will cover everything from 65.4 MP at 70 fps to 1 billion fps at 1MP visible cameras and thermal/infrared sensors. This will include the differences between CCD vs. CMOS vs. Thermal ROIC sensors and how these architectures affect the maximum frame rates and record times. New developments such as Correlated Double Sampling, binning and Back Side Illuminated sensors for CMOS will be explained. RAM vs Solid State vs “On Sensor” high speed memory pros and cons will be described. Cutting edge cameras will be on hand, so you can experience what is possible with the most recent technology. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and live demos.
Nathaniel Kajumba has an MSci in Physics and a Ph.D. (2003-2007) in laser physics from Imperial College London and over 19 years of experience with lasers, optics and research grade scientific instrumentation. He was a Research Associate at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) from 2007-2010 in the Attosecond group of Paul Corkum, and the Deputy Head of the Free Electron Laser Research Group at the Ludwig Maximilian University & Max-Plank Institute for Quantum Optics in Munich, Germany (2010-2014). During this time he operated the ATLAS laser system in Munich, Germany and the Gemini Laser Facility, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK, two of the worlds most powerful ultra fast lasers. On returning to Canada in 2014 he joined the team at Delta Photonics to leverage his experience to serve the Canadian Photonics community. Over the past eight years he has specialized in high-speed cameras and related technology. Nathaniel is located in the Vancouver sales office and covers western Canada.
