Blue Light sees through Fire

The National Institute of Standards and Technology just posted a blog about new fire science technology. Actually, it’s a new application of old science: using blue light filters to see through the distorting glare of fire, as used in glass making and other industrial processes. NIST’s blog includes a link to the open-access paper describing the experiment. Currently it is being used in materials testing, and its application in fire fighting is under consideration.
