Devices which display an object's outward appearance


  • Cameras & photography - objects for the recording of visual images
  • Focusing - changing the image point to change where light rays converge
  • Holography - an image recording technique that allows the recorded image to change as the viewer changes their position, creating the illusion that the image is three-dimensional
  • Image converters - a program that allows computer images to be converted between different formats, such as JPG, GIF, BMP etc.
  • Image sensors - devices that convert optical images into electronic signals
  • Image storage - the saving and storage of digital images
  • Infrared imaging - recording images that are visible at wavelengths longer than visible light (.74 micrometers)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging - or MRI, imaging that uses nuclear magnetic resonance to image nuclei inside a body
  • Magneto electrical resistivity imaging technique - combining electrical resistance tomography with with magnetometric resistivity
  • Microscopy - using microscopes to see objects smaller than those that can be seen with the human eye, including optical, electron, and scanning probe
  • Microwave imaging - imaging that captures electromagnetic waves in the 300 MHz to 300 GHz range
  • Motion pictures - a series of images played in succession to give the illusion of movement
  • Nuclear imaging - the use of radiopharmaceuticals and external sensors to measure biological processes inside a body
  • Optical imaging - the use of photons and lasers to obtain images inside a body
  • Radiation imaging - the imaging of radioactive materials and radioactive isotopes
  • Radiography - the use of X-Rays to view non-uniformly composed materials
  • Stereo vision - seeing from two different viewpoints, usually combined to demonstrate depth
  • Tomography - imaging by sections or by sectioning
