XPIV got very nice overview and citations

If you ask yourself what the XPIV is, track our research back to 2004. Together with Roi Gurka we have developed the ground breaking experimental technique: multi-plane stereoscopic particle image velocimetry that we entitled XPIV. ‘X’ is because the system can do ‘X’ planes (much more that usual “multi” that can have 2 planes only, but doesn’t want to overlap with the “dual plane PIV”). We have shown how it works for three planes and how it can be extended to 5 plans with $2000. One can get much more if invests in optics. This method is in any case far cheaper than any alternative, e.g. so called “multi-plane” stereoPIV from Gottingen requires: 4 cameras and 2 lasers, plus high-power beam-splitters which are very expensive optics. Our system, shown in the video clip below, is simple, easy to operate and works even in wall-bounded flows.

See how it works:
