MIT Creates a Camera that Captures at the Speed of Light

December 15th, 2011

MIT-speedoflight.jpgYour 14fps shooting speed and 120Hz
capture rate are neat and all, but researchers at MIT have you beat.
Their new camera is capable of a trillion frames a second. That’s one with twelve zeros behind it; Per second!

To show off their new tech, they’ve
made a YouTube
video
briefly explaining the concept and then showing a laser
passing through an object – skip to 1:40 for the demonstration. It’s
pretty remarkable. Capturing the movement of light on film is
something we’ve never been able to do before and this tech will
certainly create more opportunities for scientific advancement moving
forward.
