Paper Abstract

The dynamic properties of doubly-scattered speckles produced at the image plane have been investigated by using a scattering model consisting of a coherent Gaussian beam, a cascade of two moving diffusers and a single imaging lens. It is found that, when the point-spread function and the focal position of the lens satisfy certain conditions, three kinds of velocity information, i.e., the velocity of each diffuser, the average velocity of the diffusers, and the velocity difference between the diffusers, can be obtained by measuring a temporal correlation length of the time-varying speckle intensity. Experimental results confirm the theoretical predictions.
