Benard Convection
Below are some images of the apparatus we built to study Rayleigh-Benard convection in opaque fluids. An ultrasound camera was used to visualize, so to speak, the convection patterns formed in opaque fluids confined bewteen sapphire plates. A preprint of our publication can be found at http://arxiv.org/abs/0707.3293
