The concept of visualising stress is not a new one. In fact, it traces its roots back to linear thermoelastic theory, which was developed over a century ago. However, the actual implementation of this idea was far from straightforward. To visualise stress, a sensor would have to detect temperature variations as small as a few millikelvin (thousandths of a degree Celsius), but such a sensor did not exist.
Through tireless research, development, and rigorous testing, our team of experts succeeded in creating this breakthrough. What sets our approach apart is our focus on user-friendliness, durability, compactness, and affordability. Unlike relying on high-sensitivity, science-grade sensors, we built our system around less sensitive, uncooled microbolometer sensors. Surprisingly, this unconventional approach exceeded even our wildest expectations, outperforming systems that used science-grade sensors.
We succeeded in achieving a thermal resolution of less than 1 millikelvin, which was truly remarkable. As we set this astonishing benchmark, we realised the immense potential and impact of our innovation. This propelled us to share our breakthrough with the world. When it came time to name our company, the choice was obvious: 1MILLIKELVIN.
