Low temperature optical visualization provides an essential tool in understanding some types of fluid flow. We outline the various optical systems we have successfully used to visualize Rayleigh–Bénard convection in normal 4He, with comparisons of image quality between each method. The current system uses a cooled charge coupled device camera at liquid nitrogen temperatures and a 1 mW laser diode light source for illumination.
