Paper Abstract

The photon correlation Laser Doppler Anemometers were developed to measure the flow velocity also in the nanometer particle range. An LDA signal processing method has been developed for dividing the raw data line of photon correlation LDA into shorter parts corresponding to single particle transit (burst). The commonly used Lee filter was applied with some modification and an intelligent burst finding algorithm was developed. By this way the LDA system was adapted for single particle counting. The complete simulation algorithm gives an opportunity for discussing the burst selecting and so the particle counting efficiency as a function of the SNR. Size estimation from the burst size was discussed and compared to the model-based signal processing technique. The minimum detectable particle size was estimated.
