Flow visualization refers to a method used for qualitatively obtain information in the field of fluid mechanics. In this work, we show a simple single lens system using laser light illumination to observe flow dynamics using a setup similar to the schileren setup. As we will detail, it is based on a phase contrast technique in which the filter is made of a nonlinear optical material, therefore it is self-aligned and depends mainly on the illuminating intensity. Due to these characteristics, the resulting setup is extremely robust and builds up within a few milliseconds.
