One Trillion Frames Per Second - Watching Light Itself In Slow Motion

Not only can you watch light in slow motion, not only can you see relativistic effects in the ripples of the light, but you can even apply this technology to scan objects in three dimensions from around a corner with no direct line of sight!

Thank you for posting this!

Your light Video brings up one of the biggest questions I have ever wondered.

What happens when we observe everything, it will eventually happen.

Double slit theory fully recordable on a grand scale and measured? You brought up one of the things I have tried to wrap my mind around forever.

"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

to much processing of the raw data. I can tweak anything to make it look cool or what it's suppose look like.

if could demonstrate a real time camera where there is actually some algorithm that can come out with accurate pictures, then i'll be impressed.

until then its just some graphic arts dude tweaking the data until it looks cool.

Fundamentally it's no different than modern astrophotography; it's all about adding multiple frames of the same thing together to increase the signal to noise ratio and reconstruct what is really there. That doesn't mean it's fake or mere graphics art, I think that's a tad uncharitable.

Re: One Trillion Frames Per Second - Watching Light Itself In Slow Motion
wow

ground breaking stuff
 Quoting: Oyster


Not really... It is not a 1,000,000,000,000 frame per second camera!!!!

It's a clever algorithm of exposures done over and over and over with the light comming on and off over and over and over.

After compiling the exposures they make what seems like a trillion frame per second exposure.

It is ground breaking - to a degree. We can't implement this except in a very very controlled environment so good luck trying to observe other facets of light in the universe with this.

baby steps bro

the ground breaking portion i was refering to was having the ability (in the future) to take a picture around a corner.

Very cool, BUT I see a huge Military application here. Laser satellites to broadcast wide spectrum lasers at the oceans surface to image submarines. There will be no place to hide for a sub once this is weaponized. This is truly star wars technology.

Re: One Trillion Frames Per Second - Watching Light Itself In Slow Motion
i believe ive read that scientists hope to use quantum effects to produce 3d surface maps of extrasolar planets in the future.

oppositely, we have already been slowing light down to our level...
