More information

Wai's involvement in ultra high speed imaging began in 1987 when he joined Hadland Photonics as a development engineer. His background in computer hardware design was soon recognised as a major asset, and he increasingly moved towards software development of the entire product range.

Wai became software group leader within the company and developed programs to control all types of high speed imaging systems including streak, framing and single-shot cameras, as well as developing bespoke software to customer requirements. Since 1998, he was actively involved in system integration, a position that embraced management, operational testing, installation at customer's sites and customer relations.

When Wai left Hadlands and started Specialised Imaging in 2004, he was able to apply all of his skills and experience to build an award-winning company now recognised internationally as a leader in the field of ultra-high speed imaging. Products range from high resolution CCD stills cameras to state-of-the-art multi-channel intensified framing cameras capable of imaging rates up to one billion frames per second.

More recently Wai has taken the company along the image sensor development route with a radical new design of high speed video sensor capable of full resolution imaging at 5 million frames per second.
