Experimental investigation of turbulent flows

We are developing techniques to obtain particle tracks in high Reynolds number turbulence. These new ultrafast particle tracking methods allow us to make accurate measurements of Lagrangian statistics, which are of great importance both to practical questions of turbulent transport and to fundamental questions about the existence of a universal description of turbulence.
