Photoelastic Modulators can be used to determine the stress and viscosity of both static and flowing fluids. Photoelastic Modulation can detect nm scale changes in both sheer and viscous stress in DUV, visible, or IR spectrums.
The photoelastic modulator provides unparalleled sensitivity in both polarization generation and polarization measurements. However, there are many non-PEM components in most polarization experiments that can adversely affect your results. The proper selection of detectors, demodulators, light sources and polarizers is crucial to obtaining the quality results that you need and that the PEM makes possible.
Hinds Instruments will apply our expertise in polarization measurements to help you select the correct components for your specific application and experiment. We will work with you to understand your experimental goals and help you achieve them by offering you a complete solution for your application that will include a photoelastic modulator and the surrounding instrumentation.
