Schlieren System

Schlieren Imaging System

The Schlieren imaging systems provide a powerful technique to visualize fluctuations in optical density of a medium or changes or nonuniformities in refractive index.  Our customised schlieren system have two aluminized parabolic mirrors over coated with silicon monoxide and mounted in gimbal mounts, pointed LED light Source and Knife edge adjuster. High Speed Camera is used to capture the slow motion of the phenomenon. Gimbal mounts for the parabolic mirrors eliminate unwanted linear beam translation during adjustment. We have different models of the same system with different mirror sizes and focal length.
