Special Advanced IR Training Course for Research and Science Coming in October

The Infrared Training Center is hosting an Advanced IR Systems Training class this October 8-10 at our Boston-regional training center in Nashua, New Hampshire that focuses on the science behind infrared camera calibration, concepts of radiometry and target signature work.  It is intended for researchers, scientists, university students, and engineers who are using thermal imaging in their respective fields.

Included in the class will be a thorough review of IR science and modern infrared camera design with an emphasis on radiative heat transfer and the practical implications of using a thermal imaging camera to measure temperature. All common sources of measurement error will be discussed as well as the methods used to mitigate these issues.

Depending on the needs of the participants and the time available, additional topics covered may include measurement through IR windows or using mirrors to capture indirect temperature readings. While not required, students are encouraged to bring their own cameras and laptops for planned lab exercises during class.
