EO Imaging Lab Module 3.1: Introduction to Illumination Concepts

Understanding illumination concepts such as hot spots, diffuse reflections, light transmission, and fluorescence is important in determining the correct light source for an imaging application. Join Gregory Hollows, Director of Machine Vision Solutions, as he reviews how light interacts with materials in different ways, and how to use this interaction to match the light source to the geometry of the object under inspection. For more information on the suggested types of illumination for different object materials, please read our Choose the Correct Illumination application note.
