Velocity

For velocity measurements linear optics should be used. Necessary components are:

  • Laser Head
  • Power Supply
  • Linear interferometer IL1
  • Linear retro-reflector RL1

Optional elements are:

  • USB cable
  • Manual Strobe
  • Magnetic holder UM2
  • Tripod stand
  • Base temperature sensor
  • Air temperature sensor

Velocity measurements require optical elements IL1 and RL1 to be aligned along laser beam. Each of the elements can be moved. During velocity measurements the usage of the air temperature sensor is recommended. Base temperature sensors do not have to be used.

positioning

Velocity measurements can be performed not only along the laser beam (as shown in the figures above) but also in directions perpendicular to the laser beam. In those two configurations only the retro-reflector RL1 can be moved.
