  • Nanocrystal Captured On Film At 1 Billion Frames Per Second

    UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON, LONDON, UK. For the first time, researchers were able to capture the movement of electrons at a billion frames per second. The process was done using gold in order to give the scientists a better understanding of how gold reacts under exotic conditions. At the same time, they were trying to prove a point that gold could actually be useful when applied to new technologies. The first step in capturing the movement of electrons at a billion frames p .. ... READ MORE

  • A camera that can see around corners

    MIT, USA. Ultra-fast camera can create images of hidden objects using scattered laser light. A new imaging system developed at MIT's Media Lab could use opaque walls, doors or floors as 'mirrors' to gather information about scenes outside its line of sight. In doing so, the camera is able to see objects hidden behind walls. Such a camera could be invaluable in dangerous or inaccessible locations, such as inside machinery with moving parts, or in highly con .. ... READ MORE
