Femto Photography

Thought I'd share this video I found about Ultra-slow motion photography that can show light moving. http://www.youtube.com/embed/Y_9vd4HWlVA

Pretty cool if I do say so myself.

Who says the future is not like it used to be ?

Well now, I’ve seen the light…amazing.

I wonder If you can speed it up even more you could photograph the very fabric of space / time or even visualize universes within universes kind of something like a zoetrope, very interesting indeed!

I once had a gated image intensifier tube. Using the gate signal you could switch the tube intensifier on/off as fast as a nanosecond. I used a dual pulse generator to fire an LED and gate the intensifier. You got many of the same effects, just with a million times lower coolness. Light travels 11” per nanosecond, so the resolution was around a foot.

Thanks Scaru! Thats about the coolest thing I have ever seen!!!


That is really cool!! Thanks for sharing the link.

This is amazing! Thanks for bringing it to our attention Scaru.

cool video.

This is amazing! I love it when science comes up with stuff that hasn't even been imagined by science fiction writers! Seeing around corners! Seeing through translucent solids!
