LaVision systems study model of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

pulse cycle

Flow development and membrane deformation at three instances throughout the pulse cycle

Successful Fluid-Structure Interaction studies of bioscience subjects utilizing FlowMaster Tomo-PIV and StrainMaster DIC system DIC systems from LaVision

Normally, the aorta, the main blood vessel that leads away from the heart, is about 2 cm wide. If it swells up to 6 cm then one speaks of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Although rare, if a large aneurysm bursts, it causes huge internal bleeding and is usually fatal. 

At the Royal Veterinary College in London the blood flow around the aortic wall was simulated and the instantaneous flow structure in the fluid volume, in conjunction with the degree of wall deformation was investigated utilizing Tomographic PIV and digital image correlation techniques simultaneously.

These studies, in which a FlowMaster Tomo-PIV and a StrainMaster DIC system from LaVision were used, provided valuable insight and validation data for future simulations of this complex problem.

Deep-cooled Scientific Spectroscopy Camera Perfect for Low Light and Ultrafast spectroscopy

synapseihr 04

HORIBA Scientific, global leader in Optical Spectroscopy systems, launched its new Synapse EM, a deep cooled EMCCD Scientific camera for low light and ultra-fast spectroscopy experiments. The Synapse EM is available in front and back illuminated for optimal quantum efficiency. With a sensor format of 1600 x 200 or 1600 x 400 and a pixel size of 16 microns, the Synapse EM is the ideal candidate for high spectral resolution measurements. The camera comes with a standard dual readout mode that allows the users to switch automatically between EMCCD mode for low light measurements and conventional CCD mode for standard spectroscopy.

Flame: Next Generation Miniature Spectrometer from Ocean Optics


Flame builds on 20 years of expertise from the producers of the first miniature spectrometer

Ocean Optics has launched a spectrometer line that combines decades of miniature spectrometer design expertise with industry-leading manufacturing techniques. The Flame spectrometer delivers high thermal stability and low unit to unit variation without compromising the flexibility and configurability that are the hallmark of modular, miniature spectrometers. Features such as interchangeable slits, indicator LEDs and simpler device connectors provide great flexibility for a wide range of UV-Vis applications including OEM integration and lab, industrial and field use.

The Flame is fully configurable across the 190-1100 nm wavelength range for use in absorbance, transmission, reflectance, irradiance and color applications. Spectrometers come preconfigured or custom configured, with interchangeable slits that enable users to adjust resolution and throughput on demand. For example, the user can reconfigure the same spectrometer from high resolution for absorbance to high throughput for fluorescence in seconds. To further increase measurement power, the Flame works seamlessly with the Ocean Optics range of light sources, optical fibers, sampling accessories and software.
