The world’s fastest camera shoots at a speed of 5 trillion frames per second (3 photo + 2 video)
In Sweden figured out how to shoot video with speed of up to 5 trillion frames per second. This was Planck 4.4 trillion, delivered to the Japanese developers.
The most well-known option high-speed video — Phantom Flex, high this camera up to 330 000 frames per second. Users generally do not use the machine on full, stopping at a frequency of 2800 as high-speed shooting is fraught with bad resolution. Frequency up to 3000 fps gives full Full HD. Such devices have the latest CMOS sensor and the fastest processors.
They use Swedish experts from the University of Lund, to achieve a record speed of shooting? It turns out that each picture includes information about several frames. When you open the camera shutter the subject is illuminated by several flashes of the laser. All flash encoded, and visually, using the encryption key, the technician can select the desired image from the entire picture. To understand, of course, is not easy. But in real life, such cameras are not needed. Such a speed machine — a godsend for scientists. They will now be able to capture any event that lasts for a picosecond or femtosecond. You can, for example, details to see the behavior of the plasma, the quantum state or to remove the chemical reaction.
It is difficult to imagine how large the rate of about 5 trillion frames per second. Therefore, an analogy. If shoot twink, and it’s 0.3 of a second, then watching a video with the usual speed of 24 frames per second will take about two thousand years. Impressive?
The technology is called Frequency Recognition Algorithm for Multiple Exposures (FRAME) — recognition algorithm frequency for multiple impacts. The Swedes have already assembled a working prototype of an ultrafast camera. If all goes as planned, two years later, the finished product will be able to buy all interested in the invention of scientists. It even approximate value is not known.
