Laser Doppler Velocimeter
Particle Velocity and Turbulence Measurements
Real-time, non-intrusive measurement of individual particle velocity and turbulence measurement (1 or 2 velocity components) in a variety of flow applications. 
An optional 1-D transceiver can be used along with the 2-D transceiver for the simultaneous measurement of 3-components of velocity.
