Abstract
Dual-wavelength imaging is used in several scientific and practical applications. One of the most common applications is dual-wavelength thermography which has many advantages over single wavelength thermal imaging. Optical imagesplitters can be used to turn any imaging equipment into a dual-wavelength imaging system. In this paper, a new design of an image-splitting optic, for use in dual-wavelength imaging, is presented. The new design evades the limitations encountered with the basic image-splitter design where images can be captured at higher resolutions and frame rates. The new design also facilitates the adjustment of the image magnification. With very minor changes in the optical components, the image-splitter can be used in different thermal imaging techniques such as Infrared (IR) imaging and Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) imaging or any other technique that utilizes dual-wavelength imaging. Furthermore, with some modifications in the optical path, the image splitter can be used for imaging
