Light Sheet Optics for water tanks
This illumination system consisting of a mounting rig, a streamlined light guide and a streamlined light sheet housing has been designed for use in water tanks with limited optical access – e.g. those used in sedimentation studies.
The system allows the user to launch a light sheet in the flow direction with a minimal disturbance of the flow. The light-sheet thickness can be adjusted to the experiment and the sheet can be rotated through 360°.
