We want to understand the way turbulence works and hope to find some efficient ways to manage it. That's why we add particles, bubbles, droplets, polymers, electromagnetic fields, or density stratification and measure how turbulence reacts.
Our primary approach is experimental - we develop novel optical measurement methods, microscopic sensors, and open-source software to accomplish our goals.
We also help other fields of science to measure and understand their complex fluid flows: in environmental problems, biology, the human body, or industrial processes.
Real-time image processing for the 3D-PTV in action at the 1Vision headquarters before its installation in the Turbulence Structure Laboratory. Four cameras are running full speed, 4 Mpix @ 500 fps, and the Blobrecorder software can render the position of every bubble in this bubbly column in real-time.
