Rotating Table


Research group Transport Physics, Professor van Heijst, PhD, department Applied Physics TU/e


Experiment to measure geophysical flows and turbulence in liquids. Flow measurements made by laser systems combined with high-resolution CCD cameras.
Table driven by direct drive motor. Power and signal transfer by slip rings. Data transfer by 1 Gigabits optical contactless rotating transport. Two-way water transport to cool the lasers.
