What do you think about our new web site?

Love it, indeed
Really good solution
Same as old one
The old one was better
This is a new option

Butterfly wings could lead to low cost thermal imaging devices

Posted in Science on 14th Feb, 2012 04:15 PM by APM

GE scientists are exploring many potential thermal imaging and sensing applications with their new detection concept such as medical diagnostics, surveillance, non-destructive inspection and others, where visual heat maps of imaged areas serve as a valuable condition indicator. Some examples include:


Thermal Imaging for advanced medical diagnosis — to better visualize inflammation in the body and understand changes in a patient’s health earlier.
Advanced thermal vision — to see things at night and during the day in much greater detail than what is possible today.
Fire thermal Imaging — to aid firefighters with new handheld devices to enhance firefighter safety in operational situations
Thermal security surveillance — to improve public safety and homeland protection
Thermal characterization of wound infections — to facilitate early diagnosis.
Thermal imaging is used in a variety of industrial, medical and military applications today, ranging from the non-invasive inspection of industrial components and medical diagnostics to military applications such as thermal vision goggles and others.


GE’s new bio-inspired nanostructured system could enable an even broader application of thermal imaging by improving the manufacturability, image resolution, sensitivity, and response time of new systems. These advances would enable the production of more advanced systems at much lower cost, the company says

Eri! Get well soon. Fans love you.Jun Jun is twise more funny than any other MoMusu, she needs to stay. Who is gonna crack jokes now?Someone tell UFA to release a Jun Jun photboook before she grads, seriously!In my mind, Jun and Lin did really well during their time in MM. Sure, they didn't get screen time or lines, but they still worked their butts off to incorporate in the group with all the language barriers (especially Jun Jun when she first came, she had no idea what people were saying in Japanese).Now looks like Ai-chan and Gaki-san are going to stay for a some time before Gen 9 establish themselves. Hey, when they grad Sayumi would be the leader. Reply

Dec20 What i don't understood is in fact how you are now not acluatly a lot more neatly-favored than you may be now. You're so intelligent. You already know therefore significantly relating to this subject, made me for my part believe it from so many varied angles. Its like men and women aren't fascinated unless it's something to do with Woman gaga! Your individual stuffs great. All the time care for it up! Reply

disse:É um pouco stressante para mim ter de fazer umas 4 refeições com a minha família. Apesar de apreciar a companhia deles, a minha família mais afastada não é capaz de entender ineznifmelte. No entanto gostei do teu post Sandra e achei bastante útil! Vou tentar ter calma e apreciar as festividades, e esperar que não me digam nada, nem venham com piadas… Um feliz Natal para ti e para Anne, com muita saúde e alegria! Reply
