  PIV Lasers (Particle Image Velocimetry)

  Analytical Tools for Particle Image Velocimetry

  Particle Image Velocimetry(PIV) is as technique for characterizing flows in the study of fluid dynamics.
  The technique has found wide acceptance because it allows researchers to accurately characterize
  flows in two dimensions, where previous techniques allowed only single-point characterization, or
  inaccurate spatial resolution.

  As the application of this science has evolved, so too has the sophistication of PIV laser instruments
  developed by New Wave Research. Systems, like Pegasus, Gemini and Solo, are designed to be
  compact, easy-to-operate and convenient to move from one experiment to another.
  These systems, which offer a variety of laser light sources, are found in fluid dynamics laboratories of
  major universities and R&D centers worldwide.

   Pegasus-PIV
  A High-Speed Laser for Time-Resolved PIV
  
  Pegasus PIV is an innovative design that incorporates our patented dual-cavity
  
  laser head.  Pegasus features 10 mJ of 527 nm light output at 2,000 Hz.
  
  It is ideally suited for time-resolved PIV applications-especially when used in
  
  conjunction with high speed CCD cameras, or even the new higher speed
  
  CMOS cameras.
                               

      Solo-PIV
  Nd:YAG Laser Systems
  
  Solo PIV products are compact, dual laser-head systems.
  
  These systems combine controllers and power supplies into a single unit to
  
  provide the smallest possible size and maximum set up flexibility.
  
  Solo-PIV lasers offer the largest range of energy and repetition rates, providing
  
  a superb price/performance value.
                               

   Solo XT-PIV
  Nd:YAG Laser Systems
  
  Solo XT PIV lasers are compact, dual-heae laser systems.
  
  These systems provide the highest possible energy levels, 120, 200 mJ, for
  
  the largest interrogation areas.
  
  They are well suited for most liquid and many air-based PIV experiments.
  
  Solo XT PIV lasers also support fluorescence PIV applications, at 266 nm.
