Product information "Fiber Optic Delivery System for Flow Visualization"
Delivery System consisting of a laser to fiber coupler, fiber optic patchcord, fiber optic collimator, and fiber optic line generator; Power Transmission ≤1 to ≤ 20 W
In flow visualization systems, a visible wavelength laser beam is coupled into an optical fiber, recollimated at the fiber output, and then sent through a lens, generating a line. This line of laser light is then shone through the flowing liquid under inspection. Any particulate matter present, or changes to the flow pattern within the fluid, causes fluctuations in the output beam pattern which are visually observed.
OZ Optics offers complete delivery systems for flow visualization, consisting of a laser to fiber coupler, fiber optic patchcord, fiber optic collimator, and fiber optic line generator. The line generator uses a Powell lens. Compared to simple cylindrical lenses, this Powell lens transforms a collimated beam into a line with a uniform output intensity along its entire length.
Fiber optic delivery systems are available for a wide range of wavelengths. Other wavelengths are available on request. The maximum power transmission possible depends upon the fiber size chosen 4/125 fiber can handle 1 W to 3 W, 10/125 fiber can handle 3 W to 5 W, 25/125 fiber can handle 5W to 10 W, and 50/125 fiber can handle 10 W to 20 W. For best repeatability and stability, FC connectors are recommended for the fiber couplers and collimators. Pigtail style couplers and collimators are also recommended.By choosing different focal lengths for the collimating and Powell lenses, different line widths and fan angles are possible. Standard line widths for singlemode fibers are 0.8 mm and 1.2 mm. Standard fan angles are 10°, 30° and 45°. Contact us for further information on available line widths and fan angles.
