Scientific photography involves the use of wide ranging photographic techniques to measure and evaluate phenomena which are invisible to the human eye.  This may be because the subject is too fast, too slow, too small, too dangerous or is visible to parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that are not shared by the human eye.
Other techniques utilise: High speed filming Macrophotography Schlieren photography Time Lapse Ultra-violet crackdetection and many others.
 
Photomicrography of crimped wire
High speed flash @ 12 microseconds
Birefringence stress detection
