Paper Abstract

There is a well documented desire in the scientific research, development and test community to supplement and replace high speed film cameras with electronic imaging systems where immediate results are needed. Examples of the development of commercially practical systems were demonstrated by the Spin Physics SP-2000, and Ektapro 1000 as well as medium speed systems from NAG of Japan. LHESA of France has recently anounced the development of a new high speed system capable of 2000 frames per second-. Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, Ohio has developed a prototype of a high speedA low resolution, self triggering system (64 by 64 at 11,000 frames per second)L. All of the systems are constrained by two common problems: limited resolution and light sensitivity, as compared with traditional film and conventional video type instrumentation systems. Incremental advances have been made to improve the light sensitivity and operational utility of the current generation systems. Among these improvements have been the image intensified Ektapro and Solid tate storage module both from Spin Physics (Motion Analysis Division of Kodak.
