Abstract
This article reports the application of laser range imaging radar in the measurement of mechanical vibration frequency and the mode distribution, and the periodic motion of the mechanical parts such as a piston rod. The principle of the laser range imaging radar is based on the phase shift of the reflected amplitude modulated laser beam. The mechanical vibration frequency up to 20 KHZ and the minimal retrieved amplitude (or the motion displacement) of 0.5 mm have been achieved with the laser modulating frequency of 40 MHZ. With appropriate modulating frequency, this laser range system can measure the mechanical vibration amplitude, or the moving displacement, from 10-1 mm up to 102 mm, or even higher to the order of meters, which will be useful to measure the vibration and the periodic motion of machines and their parts for field test.
