Paper Abstract

When shutter speeds approach a nanosecond you set your experiment up using a tape measure. Light-in-Flight imaging takes over when the length of the pulse and the shutter time can relate to a distance of two or three meters. This paper addresses the development of next generation ultrahigh speed digital imaging system and their application to stereo photography of ballistic, penetration, fragmentation, and spray events. Applications of high speed imaging from 1000 to 100 million frames per second are discussed along with the software used to evaluate various experimental methods. Applications range from ultra-high resolution still imaging using a laser strobe to laser illuminated digital movies.
