Paper Abstract

Model MD-1 CCD Micro High-speed Videography System recently developed in Zhejiang University endeavors to apply high speed strobe videography method to micro domain. Computer controlled high speed Xenon pulses are flashed to illuminate moving micro objects. Image sequences of the moving micro objects are recorded in one frame by a CCD video camera and transferred to the computer to be reviewed, processed and stored. The system is characterized by the ability to analyze object dynamics of micrometer level with the highest magnification rate of 15,000 times, the highest 'freezing' ability of several microseconds and the highest image capture frequency of 33,000 IPS (images per second). Principles, hardware and software compositions and applications of the system are illustrated in this paper as well as the multi-beam condenser, a specially designed micro illumination device to obtain a uniform, well-balanced bright field in experiments.
