Abstract
A new laser Doppler velocimeter employing a CO2 laser has been developed by using its photoacoustic effect. A change of the pressure of a laser discharge tube, induced by mixing of a returned wave with an originally existing wave inside the cavity, is employed to detect the Doppler frequency shift. We found that a Doppler frequency shift as much as 60 kHz was detected, and as well as a good linear relationship between the velocity and the Doppler frequency shift was obtained.
