If you've ever seen a picture taken with a thermal imager, you know that they can produce some pretty trippy images. But have you ever stopped to wonder how these devices work? It turns out, the answer is surprisingly simple! Keep reading to find out how thermal imagers work their magic.

Thermal imagers work by detecting infrared radiation. Infrared radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation that falls just outside of the visible spectrum. This means that we cannot see infrared radiation with our eyes, but it makes up a significant portion of the sun's output.

All objects emit infrared radiation, but the amount of radiation emitted depends on the object's temperature. The hotter an object is, the more infrared radiation it will emit. Thermal imagers are sensitive to this radiation and can translate it into an image that our brains can interpret.

Different thermal imagers will produce different types of images based on how they are calibrated. For example, some thermal imagers will show temperature differences in shades of gray. Others might use a color palette to show different temperatures.

So there you have it! Now you know how thermal imaging works. Pretty simple, right? The next time you see a thermal image, you'll be able to appreciate all the hard work that went into making it!
