The FLIR thermal imaging system works beautifully. The first test images were made yesterday. Check out the visible and infrared image pair of a WD MyBook external backup hard drive.
We can shoot infrared videos as well. The following video shows the heating and subsequent cooling of a zirconia chip equipped with a Pt heater. The point resolution (that is, the lateral resolution of independent temperature readings) was approx. 50 micrometers. The video plays at x4 speed.
