Now THAT"S fast!

How many pixels/frame? Full colour or B/W only? Is that known?
Edit: pixel resolution = (450 × 450) Not even VGA resolution.
AT&T transfers about 30 petabytes of data through its networks each day.
Supercomputers: In January 2012, Cray began construction of the Blue Waters Supercomputer, which will have a capacity of 500 petabytes making it the largest storage array ever if realized.

Assuming American trillions that's a data rate of 50,000,000 GB/s. ( 50 Petabytes per second).
I don't think any data-bus or storage system can handle that.
Even if you include compression on-chip, I don't think its feasible.

Was that in the article? 6 frames?
Originally posted by twhiteheadSo only one (!) picture is taken during a time period hugely exceeding a 4.4 trillionth of a second. During this time six flashes with different wavelengths has flashed, one at a time, with a offset of 4.4 trillionth of a second each. And then the one only picture, 450x450 pixels, is stored in memory for later analyse and wavelength separation.
The article you referenced is a report on this article:
which has pictures showing 6 frames.
If I understand it correctly, a sequence of pulses in different wavelengths is fired at the target. The result is then separated out based on wavelength to create the images.
