Most high speed cameras can be fitted to a microscope with the use of a C-mount adapter, but what makes some cameras more suitable than others? Firstly, the¬†physical size/ shape. Does the camera fit without binding on the body of the microscope, and is it small enough to be supported just by the C-mount without…

View Particle Image Velocimetry – see the flow

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is an optical method of flow visualisation, where particles are tracked, to form a vector diagram, showing the flow pattern and flow rates of a fluid. It is generally carried out in 2D, but 3D PIV is a powerful tool for more advanced users. PIV can be carried out in liquids…
