A new camera developed in Sweden is faster than any photography gear on the planet.
Researchers at Sweden’s Lund University built a crazy-fast camera that can capture a staggering five trillion frames per second, or events as short as 0.2 trillionths of one second. Conventional cameras, by contrast, top out at around 100,000 frames per second
With the new high-speed film camera, the researchers plan to film rapid processes in chemistry, biology, and physics that are otherwise impossible to capture in photos or videos.
“Explosions, plasma flashes, turbulent combustion, brain activity in animals, and chemical reactions — we are now able to film such extremely short processes,” Elias Kristensson, a combustion physics researcher and co-inventor of the camera, said in a news release. Read more…
