Schieren Bildgebungsstudien im Rahmen des AWAKE-Experiments

The AWAKE group at Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is looking for a student to perform calibration measurements on a schlieren imaging system. Schlieren imaging systems allow observation of weak spatial inhomogeneities in transparent materials by determining the ray deflection angles caused by the gradient of the index of refraction in the material. Schlieren imaging has been used in applications ranging from viewing turbulent air from candle flames to observation of the shock cones of supersonic aircraft. AWAKE uses schlieren imaging in an attempt to measure the transverse plasma density distribution of LASER ionized rubidium vapor. The student would be responsible for: setup of a schlieren imaging system at MPP, selection of calibration test samples, performing the calibration measurements, analysis of the collected data, and publication of technical note for the AWAKE collaboration.
