Paper Abstract

High speed imagers record images at much higher speed than perceived by the human eye, but also enable to analyze it in different time bases. Recording is the keystone of sensor. It can either be embedded or remoted. The advantage of the onboard system mainly relies on the transfer speed to the in situ memory (including at the photon to charge conversion site). Its major drawback can be the onboard memory size limit. Remote storage requires the transfer of information very quickly to networks of high speed discs. If the main advantage lies in virtually infinite memory size, major drawback is the transfer speed between the camera and the external memory device. Choosing an appropriate high speed camera must be done by selecting, the maximum frame per second rate, minimum exposure time versus sensitivity and maximum recording time versus resolution and speed. Some imagers can now lead to 7kfps in relatively large resolution to 20kfps for reduced 1Mpixel images. Optics and light sources are important as continuous light require freezing the object movement by the camera exposure time, while pulsed source will remove the motion blur. For imaging, pulsed laser source in uncoherent radiation can even be used. Aperture of the optical system will determine speckle size or depth of field. Most of the imagers can be employed lensless for digital holography purposes. Small sensitive pixel will then be very attractive for this. This paper presents the recent developments and application in speckle light.
