Paper Abstract

This paper presents a method, which allows one to use a single point laser vibrometer as a continuous sensor measuring along a line or a 2D surface. The mathematical background of the curve-fitting procedure and the necessary signal processing allowing one to extract the amplitude of sinusoidal vibration are discussed. In the current work, use has been made with an ordinary laser interferometer equipped with galvanometer-based x,y mirrors. This system is not designed for continuous scanning therefore some effort needs to be spent in order to overcome the dynamical characteristics of this system. The potential of such an instrument, as demonstrated in this work, may encourage the development of mechanically better scanning devices.
