Nonintrusive measurements of mixture concentration fields by analyzing diffraction image patterns (point spread function) of nanoparticles

Nonintrusive measurements of mixture concentration fields by analyzing diffraction image patterns... The diffraction image patterns of small particles are referred to as their point spread function (PSF); these patterns vary distinctively with the refractive index (RI) of a transparent test medium when the particles are imaged through the medium. The RI correlates directly with the mixture concentration, so proper inversion of measured PSFs can provide full-field information on the mixture concentration field. In this study, fluorescent nanoparticles of 500 nm diameter are fixed on a glass surface by means of evaporative self-assembly, and the time-varying test mixture is placed in front of the glass surface. The time-varying and full-field PSF distributions are imaged and digitally analyzed to determine the local RI values as well as the local mixture concentrations. Both immiscible water/oil mixture and miscible water/glycerol mixture are imaged. The present method shows an RI measurement to have an uncertainty of ±5 × 10−3 RIU and the mixture concentration measurements to have uncertainty of approximately 4%. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
