Particle Image Velocimetry and Tracer Particle Visibility

Microspheres in Biotechnology - Modeling of Bacteria Behavior

Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) expresses a vast field with varying techniques and data acquisition methods. However, the main goal is providing an optical method of flow visualization. The exact information obtained depends on which method is used, with new algorithms and approaches being discovered constantly. There are generally two ways data is obtained PIV and Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV)…

Fluorescent Tracer Microspheres – Properties and Applications

Fluorescent Tracer Particles

Fluorescent microspheres are round spherical particles that emit bright colors when illuminated by UV light. Ability to emit intense color under UV (black light) illumination provides contrast and visibility of microspheres relative to background materials.
