Observing light-in-flight and plasma creation in the air
Researchers from Heriot-Watt University and the University of Glasgow used the PF32 camera to capture both light-in-flight and plasma creation in the air. Discussed further in the paper ‘Single-photon sensitive light-in-flight imaging’, the research process provided two key videos.
Analysing laser pulse dynamics in optical fibres
Heriot-Watt University, the University of Glasgow and the University of Southampton teamed up to use the PF32 SPAD array camera to analyse laser pulse dynamics in optical fibres.
By placing different spectral bandpass filters in front of the sensor, the PF32 recorded supercontinuum generation in photon crystal fibre, as detailed in the paper ‘Observations of laser pulse propagation in optical fibres with a s SPAD camera’.
