Ultra-fast Camera can capture light movement
Approx 70 years ago, MIT electrical engineer started using strobe lights to make remarkable photographs.
Now MIT scientists are using an ultrafast imaging system to capture light as it passes through objects and liquids.
An associate professor Mr. Ramesh Raskar said, “When I said I wanted to build a camera that looks around corners, my colleagues said, ‘Pick something that is more safe for your tenure, now I have tenure, so I can say this is not so crazy.”
A postdoctoral researcher Andreas Velten said, “It is so much slow motion you can see the light itself move. This is the speed of light: there’s nothing in the universe that moves faster.”
