Specialised Imaging (Hertfordshire, UK) has recently supplied their renowned SIM-D Ultra Fast Framing Camera in a new multispectral imaging configuration. The versatile SIM-D has the capability of fitting up to 16 individual filters with wavelength from 400nm to 850nm within the optical system. This facility, coupled with the ability to take images at exposures down to 3ns with zero interframe time, enables the accurate study of wavelength dispersion when materials are stressed, as well as temperature measurement and colorimetry applications. The optical design of the SIM-D provides the choice of up to 16 separate optical channels without compromising performance or image quality. Effects such as parallax and shading are eliminated and the high spatial resolution (> 36 lp/mm) is the same from frame to frame and in both axes.
