Ultra-Short Laser Pulses Transform the Properties of Quartz Glass

Ultra-Short Laser Pulses Transform the Properties of Quartz Glass

Quartz glass, irradiated by a laser pulse, becomes a metal for a very short span of time (femtoseconds) and returns to its original state immediately afterwards. This phenomenon has now been explained by Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) scientists in partnership with Tsukuba University researchers with the help of large-scale computer simulations.

Superframing Technique Increases the Dynamic Range of Thermal Imaging

Superframing Technique Increases the Dynamic Range of Thermal Imaging

Although most thermal cameras can produce high-contrast images showing small temperature differences, they can only do so within a defined temperature range. However when extreme temperatures appear within a scene, the hottest parts of the image will be saturated and the coldest parts will appear black or noisy, resulting in a loss of image detail and invalid temperature measurements.
