Paper Abstract

A single channel laser Doppler blood flowmetry device has been implemented using a photodetector linked to a field programmable gate array. Filters (low pass, band pass and frequency weighted) have been developed for processing Doppler signals to obtain flow and concentration measurements. The responses of these filters are demonstrated using measurements from modulated light signals, a rotating diffusing disc and in vivo measurements of blood flow.
