ROME, Feb. 26, 2013 — Finding a person hidden in a blazing, smoky fire should become a little easier for firefighters, thanks to a new lensless infrared digital holographic imaging technology that can “see” flames. Firefighters can see through smoke using the current IR camera technology, but seeing through the flames themselves is problematic, because the intense IR radiation that they emit often overwhelms the sensitive detectors, rendering them less effective than they could be. By employing a specialized lens-free technique, researchers at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR)...Read full article
