The division of Fluid and Experimental mechanics has together with the division of Mechanics of Solid Materials invested in a common laboratory for advanced research within mechanics.
This sophisticated camera system is Capable of recording 5400 frames / s at full resolution (1024x1024 pixels).
The edge5.5 camera model has 2560x2160 pixels and can operate at 100 fps at full resolution.
The PCO Sensicam double shutter has a detector containing 1024 x 1280 pixels of size 6.7 x 6.7 microns and the dynamic range is 12 bits.
A modern high-speed camera system Which is Financed by the Kempe Foundations. The numbers of pixels are 1280x1024 and 2000 images per second, with full resolution, can be recorded.
A modern high-speed IR camera system financed by the Kempe Foundations has been purchased. The number of pixels are 320x256 and the sensitivity is around 25mK.
A laser Doppler Vibrometer (LDV) is a non-contact vibration velocity (or displacement) transducer which uses the Doppler shift of back scattered laser light (He-Ne, of wavelength of 633 nm) from a moving surface.
Spectrometers are used both directly in applications such as combustion and indirectly for calibration of wavelength-tunable lasers
This laser system produces light pulses with a wavelength That Can Be Continuously tuned in the range 445-1750 nm.
The versatile laser system can be used in a number of applications. Since the system is injection seeded the two laser cavities are coherent and holographic recordings can be made.
The ruby laser is a double pulsed laser used for pulsed holographic interferometry (using film) and pulsed TV holography (using a PCO digital camera).
This light source can deliver 2 μs light pulses at 10 kHz frequency or 100 ns light pulses at 200 kHz frequency. The wavelength is 810 nm and the light can be launched in a fibre optic cable and optics to create a suitable illumination spot. The laser is easy to synchronise with a high-speed camera.
