Specialised Imaging Inc., the US sister company of Specialised Imaging Ltd. (Tring, UK), has reached agreement with Optronis GmbH (Kehl, Germany) to exclusively distribute their range of streak camera systems throughout North America.

Streak cameras provide a unique method of imaging very fast events which cannot be captured using normal high speed imaging techniques. Streak images can be obtained in picoseconds, opening the door to fundamental research in areas including biochemistry, nanotechnology, pharmacology, and semiconductor materials, as well as studying energetic materials (detonics) and electrical discharge phenomena. Specialised Imaging Ltd., through their US sales office, will offer the full line of OPTOSCOPE-SC streak cameras.

Wai Chan Managing Director of Specialised Imaging commented "The Optronis Streak systems perfectly complement our own range of ultra high-speed framing cameras. Recording simultaneous ultra fast two-dimensional and time-resolved images through an integrated streak/framing camera system is of significant interest to scientists'.

Incorporating a supplementary optical port that uses a beamsplitter to deliver 50% of the primary image to an image plane, Specialised Imaging SIM framing camera's allow secondary instruments such as streak cameras, high speed video, or time resolved spectrometers to share the same optical axis as the framing channels. Using this supplementary optical port facility the SIM can be integrated with an OPTOSCOPE SC streak camera to give a simultaneous framing and streak camera system.

Specialised Imaging is focused upon design, manufacture, service, and supply of ultra high-speed imaging systems and components for industrial, defense, and scientific applications. Optronis is a leading developer and manufacturer of streak cameras for scientific and industrial applications.
