Optophysical Measurements

A laser-based refractographic system for visualization of near-wall layers of a mixture of optically inhomogeneous liquids is described. The theory underlying the method of visualization of an inhomogeneity of a mixture based on the phenomenon of total internal reflection is considered and the sensitivity of the method is estimated. The diagram of an experimental plant and examples illustrating visualization of a mixture of a drop of glycerin and water are presented.
