What is Particle Imaging Velocimetry?

Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV) is a non-intrusive, laser optical measurement technique used in research and diagnostics of flow turbulence, microfluidics, spray atomization, and combustion processes. Particle imaging velocity measures the entire region within the flow with simultaneous measurement of its velocity. The basic principle includes photographic recording of the motion of microscopic particles that follow … Continue reading

Diffractive Optical Beam Splitters for Laser Multi-Beam Processing

Background: What is a diffractive beam splitter? Diffractive beam splitters, or multi-spot elements, are a family of diffractive optical elements (DOEs) that split an incoming laser beam into an array of beams with controlled separation angles. This splitting can be along a line (1-D splitters) or into a matrix (2-D splitter), including square, hexagonal or rectangular array … Continue reading
