ABSTRACT

SAVER Highlight: Hand­-Held Thermal Imagers [August 2016]   [open pdf - 456KB]

"All objects radiate energy in the form of electromagnetic waves, which can be generalized into two categories: visible waves and invisible waves; thermal imagers detect invisible electromagnetic waves in the infrared frequency range and convert them into visible light. Handheld thermal imagers are used to display heat signatures and residual heat signatures, making them valuable investigative tools for law enforcement and fire service personnel."
