Instrumentation for Lab
California Nano-Systems Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, has collaborated with high-speed imaging systems and image analysis software manufacturer Photron USA Inc. of San Diego to develop specialized instrumentation for its core laboratory facilities. Photron has donated three cameras for use in the institute’s Advanced Light Microscopy/Spectroscopy core lab, which focuses on optical and advanced image analysis techniques.
- A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
