In this contribution we use wavefront shaping approaches for image correlation based flow-field measurements for the first time. Aberrations introduced by a single phase boundary in the detection beam path were explored. Variations of the optical path-length result in strong errors in position allocation and thus to an enhancement of the measurement uncertainty of the velocity. Our results show that the usage of wavefront shaping enables to reduce these errors and to strongly improve the quality of image correlation based flow-field measurements. First experimental and simulated results underline the importance of these approaches.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
