Event Details & Abstract: 

Research laboratories for both the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy have imaging applications that require very fast snapshot imagers to analyze a wide range of rapidly evolving phenomena. MIT Lincoln Laboratory has a long history of developing high-frame-rate imagers to meet those application needs. This seminar will discuss the most recent technology development of three imagers: a charge-coupled device (CCD)-based 4-exposure device and a CCD-based 50-exposure device that both have burst rates greater than one million frames per second, and a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-based X-ray imager capable of taking 100 ps snapshot exposures.
