Schlieren optics is an optical technique that enables the user to image small changes and non-uniformities in the refractive index of air, or other transparent media; and are most commonly used to image air flows.
During nuclear reactions, radioactive isotopes become transmuted (changed) as they decay into another element, or a stable isotope of the same element. This process generates a lot of hazardous nuclear waste that is notoriously difficult to dispose of.
AZoOptics talks to Dr Matthew Hoehler about his recent research, using blue light to see through fires and make previously impossible qualitative observations about material damage during a fire.
Wearable optics come in many different forms, from the low-tech aesthetics by integrating optical fibers with clothing, to newly created advanced optical sensors and creating high-tech applications, such as integrating advanced optical components into augmented reality (AR) headsets.
Nanocellulose has emerged as a natural alternative to plastics for many applications because of its physical properties, such as tensile strength. In this article, we look at nanocellulose-based optical films and the applications they have been used in.
