A high-speed megapixel camera capable of taking 22,000 frames-per-second fps at 1280 x 800 resolution and 1,000,000 fps at 128 x 32 resolution was purchased to investigate dynamic phenomena in DOD-related research, along with augmenting educational activities at Rutgers. The purchased equipment allows for the overall high-speed capture of nano-energetics combustion, specifically aspects related to ignition and propagation speed. Research also encompasses utilizing the camera as part of an optical emission spectroscopy OES system for assessment of temperature and local species. The camera can be used concurrently with an existing spectroscopic system.
