PARTICLE WETTABILITY

Scientists and Engineers around the world are constantly striving to improve human life. This includes researching the materials that are present in our lives. Dr. Vitaliy Sechenyh decided to research particle wettability by using a Phantom Miro M310 and a v4.3. His research can aid in the understanding of tablet coating within the pharmaceutical industry and the refining of heavy crude oil by fluid catalytic cracking.

PARTICLE IMAGE VELOCIMETRY

Particle image velocimetry is a method of scientific research that allows observers to study how fluids move by floating small particles in liquid and then imaging how they move. Phantom cameras have many options to ensure that the data gathered is clear and easy to measure.

SCHLIEREN IMAGING

Schlieren imaging in scientific research uncovers how invisible gases move and are affected by environmental changes. Being a low light method of researchmeans that a Phantom camera with high-sensitivity is important when attempting to gather critical data. 

FIND THE RIGHT HIGH-SPEED CAMERA

A high-speed camera for scientific research is going to elevate your ability to observe and identify events in higher detail than ever before. This is an exciting endeavor, but can also be daunting, especially when you are attempting to establish which type of camera would work best for the experiments you will be performing.

The easiest way to decide which camera you will need is to answer four key questions about your laboratory and your research.

• Speed - How fast is it going?
• Size & Resolution - How large is the event and what resolution is required?
• Illumination - How much light is required to clearly see the experiment?
• Proximity - How close does the camera need to be to the event?

Regardless of what you are recording, the above will always be important. Please do not hesitate to contact us so that a trained Phantom camera expert can assist you in deciding which camera you will need.

We began as a small company seeking to improve education through high-speed imaging and we have not forgotten our roots. We have developed the A+ Academic Advantage program. This special program is built built for educators worldwide to encourage the advancement of technology at educational institutions. Research and growth by capturing an image when it’s too fast to see, and too important not to®.

A z-type schlieren imaging system is the most common setup for this non-invasive research method. Utilizing this setup in combination with a high-speed camera produces high-quality data that allows researchers to measure a variety of invisible events. Very sensitive high-speed cameras are used to capture the images seen in the directed light field. Our free whitepaper will discuss the various techniques and tools used in these studies and how the information gathered aided researchers in technological developments. Keep Reading

Lightning is one of nature's most dangerous and greatest mysteries. It is difficult to study due to the chaotic and random nature of its occurrences. Capturing lightning on video is even more difficult as the camera being pointed in the correct direction when a bolt occurs is a chance situation. The difficulty increases even more when high-speed imaging is involved. The powerful ultra-high speed cameras that are required to film lightning blasts are not easy to maneuver. Researchers must watch incoming storms closely and strategically pick the sky space that is going to be observed. Lightning rods offer researchers a stationary subject to focus on and aid in the recording. Keep Reading

Explosives testing is a unique research avenue that can benefits a number of industries, such as construction, mining, military, and police. Traditional explosives testing was performed with a labor intensive manual process that only supplied data pre- and post- detonation. High-speed cameras have allowed researchers to expand their data collection by capturing images during detonation and explosion. Keep Reading
