Stolz discussed the impact of irradiation wavelength on light intensification of a deeply imbedded spherical inclusion at normal and oblique incidence .
Chase, "Role of light intensification by cracks in optical breakdown on surfaces," The Journal of the Optical Society of America A, vol.

The light intensification
version features a 1280 x 1024-pixel sensor with 8[degrees] and 5[degrees] fields of view, and is capable of detecting a soldier at two km, while the thermal imaging version has a 384 x 288-pixel sensor, with 9.4[degrees] and 4.7[degrees] fields of view offering soldier detection capability at a range of over six kilometres.
One is light intensification, the other infrared vision.
The objective of light intensification, as its name implies, is to capture whatever light is available and amplify it.
In total contrast with light intensification, the infrared technique does not try to work from an existing picture, but builds one from the varying temperatures that constitute a scene in very much the same way that a hand can make the difference between hot and cold water.
