MIT researchers capture light travel at one trillion frames per second

researchers at the MIT media lab in america have developed a new camera system that processes visual data at a rate of one trillion
frames per second. the technology is capable of detecting light travel, producing images that can track the individual movement
of light photons through slow motion video captures. with this, the device allows for a precise examination of its illumination trail
through space onto an object in fine detail. by integrating a one dimensional streak camera consisting of over five hundred sensors
and a titanium sapphire laser, simultaneous data capture records the information, where it is then processed into a video simulation.
