Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is the technique of Infrared imaging to produce infrared images called Thermograms. Thermal imaging is also known as Infrared Thermography or Thermal Video. It uses the infrared energy above 900 nano meters. The Thermal imaging is based on the Black Body radiation law which states that all objects emit infrared radiation at room temperature. Passive infrared radiation in very high in warm blooded animals especially in Mammals and by using a Thermal imaging Camera, the warm blooded animals can be viewed in total darkness.

Infrared Night Vision

Infrared Night Vision system is used to take images of things that generate Passive Infrared rays in the form of heat. The system senses the infrared and produces a video image of the same using the infrared camera. This device is sensitive to only the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum. The system uses a Photocathode sensitive to infrared.

Night Vision in Animals

The Night time world is never closed for nocturnal animals. Unlike humans, many animals possess adaptations that allow them to see even when the night sky is very dark. Animals have developed amazing adaptations to their environments. Most nocturnal animals have large eyes relative to their body size. This adaptation, along with the ability to dilate their pupils far wider than humans can, maximizes the amount of light entering into the eye.
