The article offers information on high speed imaging technology that uses image intensification for capturing ultrafast and low light events such as combustion process inside an engine. As stated, ultrafast events such as the ignition of fuel in an engine or the flight of a projectile, the changes within one time frame cause motion blur, therefore an image intensifier can be used to enhance the image recorded by the camera. The design of an image intensifier is also discussed.
