Camera Technology: Studying Complex Ultrafast Phenomena with STAMP

Camera Technology: When a crystal lattice is excited by a laser pulse, waves of jostling atoms can travel through the material at close to one sixth the speed of light, or approximately 28,000 miles/second. Scientists now have a new tool to take movies of such superfast movement in a single shot. Researchers from Japan have developed a new high-speed camera that can record events at a rate of more than 1-trillion-frames-per-second. That speed is more than one thousand times faster than conventional high-speed cameras. Called STAMP, for Sequentially Timed All-optical Mapping Photography, the new camera technology "holds great promise for studying a diverse range of previously unexplored complex ultrafast phenomena," said Keiichi Nakagawa, a research fellow at the University of Tokyo, who worked to develop the camera with colleagues from an array of Japanese research institutions.

A Perfect Match

Capturing and documenting a true-to-life representation of your sample is an important aspect of microscopy, achieved using the digital camera. Digital cameras specialized for microscopy come in all shapes and sizes, and selecting the best camera for your system can be a daunting task. It can be of help to consider four main features that essentially dictate camera performance: color reproduction, sensitivity, live image quality and resolution. Being aware of what these parameters really mean for your chosen application will guide you to a camera to complete your microscope system and truly enhance your experience.

Embryo Development Uncovered in Real Time with Four-Lens Light-Sheet Microscope

Understanding embryo development is still one of the most intriguing questions facing today's biologists. Light-sheet microscopy is rapidly gaining recognition for whole organism imaging, allowing cell growth, differentiation and morphogenesis to be studied in detail. However, compared to confocal microscopy, the amount of data generated by this new technique is approximately three thousand times greater and poses new storage and image post-processing challenges.
