How does FLIR Work?

FLIRs make pictures from heat, not visible light. Heat (also calledĀ infrared, orĀ thermal, energy) and light are both parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, but a camera that can detect visible light wonā€™t see thermal energy, and vice versa.

Contrary to conventional cameras which operate on the principles of visible light, thermal cameras function on an entirely distinct paradigm. While traditional cameras and the human eye rely on the reflection and detection of visible light energy to generate images, thermal imagers deviate from this norm by capturing and interpreting heat emissions, also known as infrared or thermal energy.

The fundamental disparity lies in the electromagnetic spectrum: visible light and thermal energy occupy different spectral regions. Consequently, a camera designed for visible light detection cannot discern thermal energy, and conversely, a thermal camera cannot perceive visible light.
