Watch the photons of the light with this 1000000000000 FPS camera [Science]
posted November 13 2012 6:43.17 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Some time ago i posted a blog entry announcing the fastest camera in the world. Now it is time to put it to work. Watch the following video to literally see pulses of light moving in slowly!!!

And some math for those who like them (i hope all). Light travels at 300.000 km/sec in vacuum, that is 300.000.000 meters/sec, or 300.000.000.000 mm/sec. This camera can capture 1.000.000.000.000 frames per second. Dividing these data we find out that this camera can slow down the speed of light down to 0.3mm/frame!!! So each frame shows the light moving less than half a millimeter!

    • Velocity of light is 300000 km per second, not per hour. And to get from mm/h to mm/s the factor is 3600, not 60. Ithink you need to tweak your math a bit ;-)
