Paper Abstract

A fiber-optic laser Doppler velocimeter (LDV) combining non-mechanical scanning and multipoint measurement is proposed for two-dimensional velocity distribution measurement on a cross-sectional plane. The LDV consists of a main body including a tunable laser and LiNbO3 phase-shifter array, and a probe including diffraction gratings. The phaseshifter array is used to generate spatially encoded measurement points aligned in the transverse direction by multichannel optical serrodyne modulation, and these points are axially scanned with wavelength change. Two-dimensional velocitydistribution measurement is demonstrated using a probe setup with an 8-channel beam array.
