Providing the first comprehensive treatment, this book covers all aspects of the laser Doppler and phase Doppler measurement techniques, including light scattering from small particles, fundamental optics, system design, signal and data processing, tracer particle generation, and applications in single and two-phase flows. The book is intended as both a reference book for more experienced users as well as an instructional book for students. It provides ample material as a basis for a lecture course on the subject and represents one of the most comprehensive treatments of the phase Doppler technique to date. The book will serve as a valuable reference book in any fluid mechanics laboratory where the laser Doppler or phase Doppler techniques are used. This work reflects the authors' long practical experience in the development of the techniques and equipment, as the many examples confirm.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"In this book, the authors have expertly combined the physics (principles) and engineering (practice) in a manner readily accessible to both schools. As such, it has concisely fulfilled a role in addressing a real need in fluid mechanics literature. . The content of the book is impressively comprehensive and rigorously encompasses all aspects of the techniques . . The authors present an excellent platform for data analysis by summarizing common experimental applications . . I can only wholeheartedly recommend this book . ." (Dr. S. Begg, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 46 (1), 2005)"This book offers ... a very good overview of laser Doppler and phase Doppler measurement techniques . . Because of the comprehensive overview, the clear organization, and thanks to the impressive amount of references reported, the book is an excellent aid as an educational support. At the same time the thoroughness of the treatment, as well as the new results included, document and consolidate the state of the art in this measurement technique, thus making this book a good basic reference for specialists . ." (L. Bottura, Cryogenics, Vol. 43, 2003)
