High Speed visualisation of a droplet impacting a hard surface

Figure 1: Splash is suppressed when the ambient air pressure is reduced. A drop 3.4mm in diameter of ethanol colliding with a surface at a speed of 3.74 ms-2 splashes at atmospheric pressure (top panel) but spreads smoothly at 0.172 atmospheres (bottom panel). Pictures taken from Xu,. Zhang, and Nagel (2005)

Quantum Composers model 9528 Digital Delay Pulse Generators has been incorporated for use as a timing system at Brown University, of Providence, RI, in a research project which has begun to reveal the hidden mysteries of how liquid droplets splash.

NoIR Laser shields: Protection against laser pointer induced glare and flash blindness

Flight Deck Test of CE-certified NoIR Laser Shield

High-powered hand-held laser pointers have become a significant hazard to law-enforcement officers and pilots, as they can induce a temporary and dazzling flash/glare blindness. The sudden loss of vision from even a low-power laser pointer illumination can be disorienting and debilitating, yet standard sunglasses and typical safety goggles provide virtually no protection from these hazards.

Edmund Optics Plastic Hybrid Acylinder lens

Edmund plastic acylinder lenses

  • Colour-Corrected Acylinder Lenses
  • High Numerical Apertures
  • Ideal for Creating Line Profiles with Broadband Sources

Similar to an aspheric lens, Edmund Optics TECHSPEC Plastic Hybrid Acylinder Lenses provide diffraction-limited focusing performance in only one dimension. By reducing spherical aberration along the focusing axis, TECHSPEC Plastic Hybrid Acylinder Lenses are ideal for creating thin line profiles. The hybrid design offers negative optical dispersion and color-correction, while the high numerical apertures allow these lenses to be used with divergent light sources such as laser diode bars and LEDs.
