Specialist sensor cameras
Many materials effect the polarisation of light falling on to them. While this has been known in scientific experimentation for many years, realising the techniques for automated inspection has been challenging. However, now the first polarisation cameras are coming to market with polarisation applied to individual pixels or lines. This opens up applications such as seeing the stress in clear glass, checking the weave of carbon fibre, detecting the difference between paper and plastic and identifying foreign bodies in tissue.
