Caltech Fastest Camera 70-Trillion
A research team led by Lihong Wang at Caltech’s Andrew and Peggy Cherng Department of Medical Engineering have developed an ultra fast camera that is capable of taking as many as 70 trillion frames per second. In other words, it’s fast enough to see waves of light traveling and the fluorescent decay of molecules. Read more for another picture and additional information.


Fastest Camera
The camera technology is called compressed ultrafast spectral photography (CUSP) and it’s very similar in some respects to previous fast cameras he has built, such as his phase-sensitive compressed ultrafast photography (pCUP) device, which has the ability to take 1 trillion frames per second of transparent objects and phenomena. However, CUSP combines a laser that emits extremely short pulses of laser light that last just one quadrillionth of a second with optics as well as a specialized type of camera.
