DirectShear-Optical™ sensors are robust, high-bandwidth shear stress sensors designed from the ground up for harsh environments, including high-temperature applications. The sensors employ purely optical transduction, a silicon/Pyrex micromachined floating element, and a remote optical fiber readout to enable time-resolved one-dimensional, direct shear stress measurements at high temperatures.
Like the original DirectShear line of sensors, IC2's DirectShear-Optical sensors are capable of both mean and dynamic measurements of wall shear stress over a wide dynamic range and are offered in a range of sensor models to suit different applications.
The optical sensors are now commercially available and are ideal for precision skin friction measurements in high-speed, high-temperature test facilities.
