Micro-Measurements - PhotoStress® Plus - PhotoStress® Analysis System
System Configuration
Reflection Photoelasticity
  • White light generated by the light source propagates through a polarizer and quarter wave plate. The circularly polarized light then travels through a Photostress® coating (made of a photoelastic material) that has been bonded to the test piece with a special reflective adhesive.
  • The light then travels back through an additional analyzer and quarter wave plate. The image is then captured with a digital video camera, and transferred to a computer equipped with the PSCalc® software which enables the user to store and process all the acquired data.
