Abstract

The effect of speckle pattern on laser Doppler velocimeters is studied theoretically and experimentally. We have found that dynamic speckle patterns can cause error in velocity measurement. Increasing sampling time and using proper signal processing circuits can eliminate the bad effect caused by speckle pattern. The accuracy of velocity measurement is better than 2.1% in a wide velocity range (4.66-468.86 mm/s) when speckle effects are taken into account.
