The compact Doppler benchtop instrument enables Photonic Doppler Velocimetry in a compact and versatile benchtop form factor.
Velocity measurement of fast-moving materials is essential to a growing number of scientific and technical fields including shock physics, the study of material properties, hypervelocity impact testing, detonics and shock wave experiments.
Photonic Doppler velocimetry (PDV) is a well accepted technique used to measure high-velocity events at speeds up to tens of km/s.
The Doppler benchtop instrument combines the key optical components for PDV measurements in a compact instrument to enable streamlined low channel count PDV test setups.
Accurate control and measurement of target, probe and reference power
All of your optical power management in a single purpose-built instrument.
Generate reliable, repeatable measurements
Minimise the number of manual optical connections for reliable and repeatable measurements.
Supports traditional homodyne and frequency-shifted heterodyne PDV testing
USB or LAN operation
Connect with USB or LAN for simple setup and operation.
Ultra compact and flexible form factor
Housed in a compact and robust metallic case, its extremely small footprint helps you make the most of your available bench space.
Simple, intuitive operation with CohesionUI
CohesionUI makes it simple to control the Doppler from your PC or mobile device. Plus our MATRIQ products come with fully functional LabVIEW™ drivers and support SCPI commands that you can send and receive from MATLAB®, Python, C and C++.
This product comes with a 3 year warranty.
Ultra Compact & Portable Design
Our MATRIQ range of compact USB and Ethernet instruments are designed to be portable and versatile,without sacrificing performance.
With a stackable and well-balanced design, they make it easy to stack vertically and save valuable bench space. Plus, when the instruments are not being used for PDV measurements, they can be used individually for other purposes in the lab.
Study of material properties and impact response using shock physics
Replacement for Velocity Interferometer System for Any Reflector (VISAR) with an integrated fiber-based system.
Measure velocities in dynamic experiments with high temporal precision.
High-bandwidth, broadband optical to-electrical converter with 1 or 2 channels, AC or DC coupling, and various conversion gain and operating wavelength ranges.
Built-in amplifier eliminates the need for additional RF amplifier for significant cost savings per channel.
Example: 2 Channel PDV System
An introduction to PDV and multi-channel and multiplex systems
In this in-depth video, David McCormick, Technical Sales Manager for North America, provides an overview of Photonic Doppler Velocimetry (PDV) and provides in-depth examples of how to integrate multi-channel and multiplexing techniques using Coherent Solutions instruments.
