Paper Abstract

Technological limitations have so far restricted the applications of laser light scattering techniques to terrestrial applications, because of size, cost and fragility. Following our recent experimental advances* (based on the use of a new set of solid-state technologies in this field), we will discuss proposed experimental uses of miniaturised laser light scattering systems in the microgravity environment. Non-invasive particle-size capability can be applied to new experiments where the absence of sedimentation and convection is crucial. Precision non-invasive velocity measurement has many potential uses, from flame studies to fluid-flow inventories.
