Paper Abstract

The Velocity Interferometer System for Any Reflector (VISAR) has become a widely used tool for measuring surface velocities of rapidly moving parts. The VISAR measures the velocity of a moving surface by measuring the velocity dependent phase change of laser light reflected from the surface. Experiments performed to date have measured velocities of several kilometers per second (millimeters per microsecond) to an accuracy of better than one percent.
