Some of its many applications include plasma imaging, combustion research, material deformation analysis, and spectroscopy. 

The following videos were recorded with the Kirana. This page will be updated as new videos are taken.

Fill out the following form to briefly describe how you will use the camera in your research project. A student custodian will notify you that your request has been received and will provide you with a liability form and an estimated rental window. Rental periods are one week long and will require additional justification for extension. Students are required to provide a laptop with an Ethernet port to operate the camera and to attend a 30 minute training session in 036 AERB on the first day of the rental period.
