Interferometry in the palm of your hand

Infrared spectroscopy is a versatile tool for numerous tasks such as; process analysis, sorting, healthcare and food inspection. Since infrared light penetrates into materials, the composition of the material itself is observed instead of measuring only the surface. This is possible due to the fact that molecular bindings are always in a state of oscillation. Read more about Interferometry in the palm of your hand[…]

Thermal imaging to screen for elevated skin temperature

Summary A thermal imaging camera can be an effective screening device for detecting individuals with an elevated skin temperature. This type of monitoring can provide useful information when used as a screening tool in high-traffic areas to help identify people with an elevated temperature compared to the general population. That individual can then be further Read more about Thermal imaging to screen for elevated skin temperature[…]
