Photon Doppler velocimetry

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Photon Doppler velocimetry (PDV) is a one-dimensional Fourier transform analysis of a heterodyne laser interferometry. It was developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory by Strand. [1] In recent years PDV has achieved popularity in the shock physics community as an adjunct or replacement for VISAR[disambiguation needed] in the instrumentation of high-strain-rate events. Contemporary data acquisition technology and off-the-shelf optical telecommunications devices now leverage the assembly of these systems within reasonable budgets.

Conference[edit]

The 2009 PDV users conference was held at the University of Texas at Austin, Institute for Advanced Technology. [2] The 2010 PDV users conference was held at the Ohio State University. [3]
