Abstract
A new distributed sensing method for measuring directly the flow velocity by using low coherence interference techniques is proposed and demonstrated. In the present method, temporally fluctuated signal, not the Doppler frequency shift, is detected. Theoretical analysis shows that the spectrum of backscattered light from the particle takes a Gaussian form whose width is simply proportional to the flow velocity. The accuracy for adjusting the depth position is approximately 34 micrometer which is determined by a coherence length of a light source.
