Paper Abstract

A compact reference beam laser Doppler velocimeter, constructed using a semiconductor laser diode, optical fiber components and semiconductor detectors, is reported. The device has been designed to overcome many of the problems commonly associated with reference beam configurations. The anemometer may be operated with the laser diode operation in cw and pulsed modes, demonstrating its applicability to wavelength and time division multiplexing schemes for 3D laser Doppler velocimetry. The probe is used to measure the velocity of a spinning disk in the range -20 m/s to +20 m/s.
