Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM) with a focus on frequency domain FLIM with pco.flim

This video tutorial explains how fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) can be done and what the benefit of frequency domain FLIM done with a pco.flim camera system is.

Electron Beam Welding

Courtesy Westfälische Hochschule Gelsenkirchen Bocholt Recklinghausen Fachbereich Maschinenbau und Facilities Management, Institut für Maschinenbau During electron beam welding the high energy concentration causes the material to melt, forming plasma. The escaping plasma creates a channel as it “drills” into the depth of the workpiece and forms the welded seam as it cools. The sequence shown has been acquired using 9,000 fps with the exposure matched to the actual welding process. A commonly applied technique is to oscillate the beam via electromagnetic coils. A circular suspension of diameter 0.4 mm was used here. At 10 Hz the electron beam moves the plasma channel, while at higher frequencies (e.g. > 500 Hz) the electron beam increases the plasma channel. At the bottom left, the open plasma channel can be seen very well, while the electron beam moves at the edge.

Luminescence lifetime imaging camera

This video shows the principle of photoluminescence in the time domain (pulsed excitation) and in the frequency domain (continuous, modulated excitation) using the pco.flim – a specialized camera for luminescence lifetime measurements in the frequency domain. The corresponding waveforms of light, shaped and delayed by a reflective target and a photoluminescent sample, are visualized. In the time domain a short light pulse excites a photoluminescent sample, which emits a decaying light pulse. In the frequency domain, the same sample introduces a phase shift to the luminescent response of the periodically modulated excitation light. This particular phase shift can be detected by the pco.flim, which provides a dedicated modulatable image sensor.

Four Eyes Fishes and Pelicans

Four eyes fishes live in tidal waters and they are sometimes hunted by pelicanes, who need to chase them into little deeper waters. Rainer Bergomaz of Blue-Paw-Artists (blue-paw-artists.com/) used pco.dimax high-speed cameras to record these fascinating sequences. In case you are interested in the footage please contact Blue Paw Artists (rainer.bergomaz@blue-paw-artists.com). {Copyright BR 2017}

Jumping Croc

Crocodiles on Cuba have added skills to their hunting capabilities. They learned to jump for prey, an amazing footage taken by Rainer Bergomaz, from Blue-Paw-Artists (blue-paw-artists.com/). The slow motion was recorded with PCO camera technology. In case you are intested in the footage please contact Blue Paw Artists (rainer.bergomaz@blue-paw-artists.com). {Copyright BR 2017}
