Advancements in technologies is getting faster each and every day. Today, technologies have become so advanced that machines can not only perform tasks similar to human beings, but also those tasks that were considered impossible for them. An INRS professor and ultrafast imaging specialist, Jinyang Liang, developed T-CUP, which is the world’s fastest camera.
So, what camera speed you could expect according to the present age of technology? A camera capturing millions or billions of frames per second? But, a group of researchers at INRS in Canada have developed the T-CUP technology.
It is the world’s fastest camera that could capture ten trillion frames per second. Also, it could freeze light and time! So, this means it could capture any scene in an ultra slow motion by freezing the time. In addition, it could also capture light in an ultra slow motion to allow you to view light in real-time.
Technology behind the T-CUP
According to the INRS University, this camera is based on the T-CUP system. Here, the CUP refers to Compressed Ultrafast Photography technique. The technology behind T-CUP works by random codes for encoding and decoding the ultrafast dynamic site with the help of a compressed sensing algorithm. The system equips more than one camera.
