Paper Abstract

This paper describes the use of the Phoenix infrared camera system in the area of high speed laser research. The Phoenix camera is a highly modularized, high performance system, developed by Indigo Systems Corporation to fully exploit the features inherent to Indigo's line of standard readout IC (ROIC) chips. Among the features supported, several are of particular relevance to work in the areas of laser gated imaging and beam profiling. These include windowing capability to greater than 10 KHz; pre-programmed acquisition sequences to support event profiling; a variety of synchronization modes to synchronize the camera to external events as well as external events to the camera, a built-in programmable trigger delay and a full 14-bit data path. Several examples of ongoing basic research will be presented to illustrate the use of these features.
