Paper Abstract

A novel velocimeter for the measurement of blood velocity in veins and arteries is described. It consists of a semiconductor laser, coupled to a glass fiber, to be inserted in the flow, and applying self-mixing as the detection technique. Theoretical aspects and in-vivo and in-vitro measurements are described and discussed.
