Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence

 

"Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence refers to flow visualization technique in which the fluid is seeded with a fluorescent dye that absorbs at one laser wavelength and emits fluorescent light at another. In this way, illuminating the flow with a planar laser light sheet produces an image in which the brightness at the emitted wavelength is proportional to the concentration of dye. PLIF is used to measure mixing rates, as well as to visualize flow.
