Thermal imaging cameras allow researchers to not only see volcanic heat, but also to get non contact temperature readings from a safe distance, which keeps the researchers out of harm’s way.

This paper introduces and demonstrates the technique of 'superframing'. The technique of superframing consists of varying the exposure, or integration time of a thermal imaging camera from frame to frame in a cyclic manner and combining the resulting subframes into single superframes with greatly extended temperature ranges, thereby allowing the user to visualize scenes featuring wide temperature differences.

The measurement of luminaires has traditionally been performed with a photometer placed in the far-field, which measures the illuminance from the light source one angle at a time. A near-field goniophotometer exploits the latest advances in imaging photometry and represents a more affordable and flexible option compared with a far-field instrument.
