Photon Doppler Velocimetry – Sensitivity Demonstration with a Class 1M Target Laser

Photon Doppler Velocimetry (PDV) is a popular measurement technique used in shock physics and is finding new applications in a number of fields.

In this video, David McCormick of Coherent Solutions describes how replacing a high-power target laser with a Class 1M laser offers a number of advantages, and demonstrates optical-to-electrical output level versus reflection with real instruments.
