Reports that dual optical devices (a charge coupled device camera and a photometer) were attached to a modified microscope for the observation of axisymmetric thin aqueous film drainage. Recording of light intensities through both devices; Film thickness distribution around the film area; Use of an adjustable horizontal platform to support the main drainage cell.
