Imaging at One Trillion Frames per Second

By Ramesh Raskar and Christopher Barsi High-speed imaging is a long-standing goal in optics, with applications in spectral dynamics, motion analysis, and three-dimensional imaging. Currently, commercially available systems can offer sensors operating at one million frames per second at reduced spatial resolution.1 In the lab setting, serial time-encoding of 2D images have provided 100 ps […]
