World’s fastest camera captures Light Particles in motion.

World’s fastest camera captures Light Particles in motion.


The researchers at the Lund University (Sweden) have revealed what they’re calling the fastest highspeed camera ever developed, capable of capturing even light itself in slow motion. The camera is capable of capturing a whopping 5 trillion frames

per second. That means, itcan even visualise events that take place in just 0.2 trillionths of a second and
slow them down in playback.

The researchers, Elias Kristensson and Andreas Ehn have called the new technology FRAME (Frequency Recognition Algorithm for Multiple Exposures). Unlike the human eye, which would

see nothing that passes at 1.079 billion kilometres per hour, the camera was able to capture the photons at such a high rate that they appeared to be hardly moving at all.

How the camera works.

The camera works by flashing a laser at the subject, and recording a unique code for each pulse. In this way, the camera can store four separate images in each video frame, using the codes to later decrypt and separate them into a proper sequence.
