Thermal imaging in research and development

Award-winning thermal imaging cameras for scientific work

Designed for the laboratory

In both industrial development and academic research thermal imaging cameras are increasingly being used in the area of temperature monitoring in research laboratories, whether in material development or product testing. Research laboratories for all types of materials and hardware testing cannot operate without temperature monitoring with thermal imaging cameras. Thermal imaging cameras help researchers collect accurate and reliable thermal data, thermal images and multi-dimensional analysis in seconds to easily record experimental processes, analyze research results and create related experimental documentation.

Polymer materials testing

Polymers are synthesized from monomers and are the basis of polymer materials. During the molding process, the polymer can be affected by changes in temperature, pressure, stress and exposure time, which will affect the structure and quality of the material. A thermal imaging camera can directly monitor the reaction temperature, and thus analyze the structure as well as mass of the material at different reaction temperatures to control the optimal reaction temperature. With a 100-micrometer macromirror, you can inspect finest structures, record or stream radiometric videos, and then use the analysis software to perform a detailed examination of the temperature data.

Photothermal therapy of tumors

Photothermal therapy is the pioneer and hot spot of tumor therapy, the core is the application of nanomaterials with high photothermal conversion efficiency. The effect of photothermal therapy is related to the cumulative number of nanoparticles in the tumor area, tumor location, illumination parameters and light patterns – temperature being one of the most important physical parameters. In the pharmaceutical research phase, it is necessary to measure the temperature rise at different concentrations of different medications. Thermal imaging cameras can be used to detect temperature changes in cancer tissue under laser irradiation without interfering with the treatment. A radiometric thermal imaging video records the entire temperature rise process of the specific treatment of a tumor and, together with the analysis software, enables the comparison of different experiments with different medication concentrations as well as the visualization of the experimental effect.

Fiber laser quality inspection

The overall electro-optical efficiency of fiber lasers is 30 to 35%, with most of the energy dissipated in the form of thermal energy. Temperature measurement can be used to determine the condition and lifetime of the laser. The use of thermal imaging cameras to monitor the installation is obvious. The measurement is simple, it does not affect the object to be monitored, it is inutitive and allows to analyze the problem to the point. This helps to ensure the processing quality of the laser machine.

Tire durability test

Tire safety is an important part of automotive research and development. The temperature of the tire surface affects its grip and tire pressure. By using thermal imaging cameras in tire testing, the tire structure and its behavior, as well as the response to use, can be analyzed directly through temperature behavior. Thermal imaging can help improve design, production and material selection.
