THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND THE PRODUCTS

The phase-schifting schlieren

“The schlieren technique is a popular for depicting deviations in light beams induced by density or temperature gradients in a fluid, surface shape, deformation, etc.1 The technique has many applications, in particular, fluid physics, flow illustration, and jet_arc characterization. Its success is due to its relative easy of implementation, low cost, use of conventional light sources, and high and variable sensitivity.”
