Los Alamos National Laboratory research and development engineer Scott Watson talks about the history of imaging technology and the relatively new fields of high-speed photography and flash radiography at a Frontiers in Science series talk at 7 p.m. Thursday (March 8) in the Museum of Natural History and Science, 1801 Mountain Road N.W., Albuquerque.
“Capturing the Light: Scientific Imaging in the Modern World” also showcases the world’s fastest movie camera called MOXIE, for Movies Of eXtreme Imaging Experiments.
The shoe box-sized device makes movies at 20 million frames per second and won a prestigious 2010 R&D 100 award.
“From the humble beginnings of Galileo’s telescope and al-Hassan’s camera obscura, scientific imaging now captures the entire electromagnetic spectrum and a range of subatomic particles,” said Watson.
Watson, of LANL’s Advanced Nuclear Technology Group, also plans to give the talk on
