FluidMaster is a complete laser imaging system family for the quantitative visualization of thermal flows and mixing processes in fluids. Instantaneous concentration and temperature fields are measured with high spatial and temporal resolution.
The FlowMaster MITAS laser imaging system comprises a fully motorized 3-axis microscope stage with a high performance controller and a high precision microscope objective. For standard applications a 500mW DPSS laser for pulsed illumination, a high sensitive, dual frame-multiple exposure CCD camera is used. A system PC with built-in synchronisation unit controls the complete laser imaging system. LaVision’s modular DaVis software is used for advanced image acquisition and data analysis.
The xyz(focus)-traverse system can be operated manually using a joy stick or the device control manager in DaVis. The light is delivered through an optical fiber to the microscope. A built-in pilot LED is used for target focusing. The filter cube exchange
box allows a fast adaptation for different excitation and emission wavelengths. CCD camera, light source and synchronization are also under DaVis control.
The LaVision FlowMaster system family evaluates three-dimensional velocity vector fields from scattered light patterns of particles or droplets seeded into the flow (liquid or gas). Techniques like Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV) are supported. LaVision's FlowMaster camera systems can record two successive images within min. time <100 ns for ultrafast cross-correlation and speeds up to Mach 4. The PIV cameras offer highest sensitivity and allow the use of very small particles (or droplets). An image field of up to 11 million pixels combined with up to 14 bit dynamic range gives an unsurpassed spatial resolution. Programmable precise timing sequences in combination with flexible and speedy software evaluation complete the package.
