Characterization of IR cameras in student labs

  • The content of a student lab course is described which deals with characterization of the most important parameters governing the performance of infrared cameras. In detail, the parameters describing the temperature resolution, spatial resolution and time resolution of commercial IR cameras are analysed using simple lab experiments. Understanding the respective performance of the system is the prerequisite for applying infrared thermal imaging to quantitative measurements in physics andThe content of a student lab course is described which deals with characterization of the most important parameters governing the performance of infrared cameras.
