Peter Carellas, CEO & President of iX Cameras, held two lectures and two workshops on Lenses and Optics in High-Speed Imaging at the MIT Professional Education Short Program on High-Speed Imaging for Motion Analysis.
The lectures covered topics ranging from overall general theory of lenses, best practices on using lenses in high-speed imaging, sensor formats, and how to pick the best lens for a specific application. The hands-on workshops addressed different methods of using a lens, how to utilize the lenses you have vs. purchasing additional lenses, micro vs. macro lenses, and which lenses and other key optical equipment you need to maximize your efficiency in your lab.
The MIT high-speed imaging and motion analysis program is designed for scientists, engineers, and imaging specialists who need to gather data on rapidly moving subjects and events for study, motion analysis, and trouble-shooting. The program combines lectures focusing on imaging technologies, motion analysis, lenses and lighting with labs where the attendees have the opportunity to try out the latest in high-speed-imaging equipment.
