Visualizing video at the speed of light

Posted In Cool Gadgets - By JohnScript On Thursday, December 29th, 2011 With 0 Comments

Massachusetts Institute of Technology investigators have produced a new picturing system that can produce visual data at a pace of one trillion exposures per second. That is accelerated sufficient to acquire a slow-motion video recording of a burst of light moving the distance of a one-liter bottle, rebounding off the cap and reverberating back to the bottle’s bottom.

The picture acquired by this system is therefore 2D, merely merely one of the dimensions — the one matching the steering of the slice — is spatial while the other one is time. The picture therefore corresponds the arrival time of photons going through linear-dimension cut of space.
