Imaging is an effective tool in scientific research, manufacturing, and medical practice. However, despite its importance, it is not easy to observe dynamical events that occur much faster or slower than the human time scale (found in photochemistry, phononics, fluidics, MEMS, and tribology). Unfortunately, traditional methods for imaging fall short in visualizing them due to their technical limitations. In this talk, I will introduce radically different approaches to imaging. I will first discuss ultrafast imaging and then talk about ultraslow imaging. I will show how these imaging tools help us better understand dynamical processes.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
