Paper Abstract

A low cost laser Doppler velocity measuring system has been developed, and is described in this paper. The principles of period measuring instruments are reviewed and the system parameters important to the measurement are considered. It is shown how the parameters may be adjusted to allow the development of a relatively low-cost instrument which does not have the high performance characteristics of some commercial instruments, but which is more than adequate in performance for most industrial applications.
