Japanese invented ultra-fast camera STAMP

Researchers from The University of Tokyo and Keio University developed a camera that shoots 4.4 trillion frames per second

According to Nature Photonics, the new technique is known as Sequentially Timed All-optical Mapping Photography (STAMP), and can create 450 × 450 pixel shots. It works by shooting ultra-fast single-shot bursts of laser light that are reflected from an object, and therefore can map it very quickly. The speed of shooting can reach 4.4 trillion frames per second as it skips the usual process of creating images in conventional cameras.

According to CHIP, the new technology will allow to witness the physics and chemistry which weren’t possible to capture until now. The invention can be used in such fields of science as photochemistry, quantum electrodynamics, and plasma physics.
