Consecutive image series of a high-voltage discharge development taken with a 3-channel XXRapidFrame high speed framing camera. The individual channels are based on the 4 Quik E ICCD camera providing shortest gating times of 1.2ns. The image series is taken with inter-channel delay of 15ns.

Ultrafast imaging with the multi-channel ICCD framing camera

In 2004, Stanford Computer Optics, Inc. introduced the ultrafast framing camera, XXRapidFrame. This ultra high speed framing camera educes the advantages of the outstanding intensified CCD camera in terms of highest temporal and spatial resolution. Especially, the 200 ps exposure time and the inter-channel time of 10 ps allow users to take consecutive image series of the fastest processes in high resolution. The XXRapidFrame framing camera consists of up to eight intensified CCD channels. This setup enables consecutive image series of up to 8 frames with a frame rate of 100 billion frames per second. By applying the double frame mode a consecutive image series of up to 16 frames can be taken. Therefore, the XXRapidFrame camera provides access to the fastest process like flash origin or laser ablation.

Various applications for ultra high speed imaging

The XXRapidFrame with its unrivaled properties is used for many fields of research. This framing camera is applied in plasma research, combustion research, hyper-velocity impact studies, Laser ablation, electron beam curing, Fusion reactions diagnostics and lightning and discharge dynamics. The consecutive image series above shows the development of the high-voltage discharge taken with a 3-channel XXRapidFrame high speed framing camera. The individual channels are based on the 4 Quik E ICCD camera providing shortest gating times of 1.2ns. The image series is taken with inter-channel delay of 15ns.
