100 Billion Frames Per Second

By Anupum Pant

Couple of months back there were researchers unveiling the trillion frames per second camera, which actually didn’t capture real-time image. This time it is different.

Researchers from Washington University say they’ve built a camera that can capture 100 billion frames per second. It is faster than anything ever made and works on a completely different principle – which they call the compressed ultrafast photography (CUP).

This camera is so fast that it can capture a light photon in motion. Here’s a slow motion video of light bouncing off a mirror. The amount of time taken for this event to happen spanned only 300 trillionth of a second.
