IR Scanner

Part of the Experimental Fluid Mechanics book series (FLUID)


The infrared scanner can be schematically described in the following way. Thermal radiation, entering the scanner, is collected by an optical system and sent into a temperature detector that is sensible to the selected IR band. The electrical signal generated by the detector is acquired by a video frame grabber and is processed by a dedicated electronic board in order to obtain a temperature map of the scanned scene.
