Author Affiliations +
We report flow measurements based on the photoacoustic Doppler effect. We have performed flow experiments with a suspension of micrometer carbon particles and have detected the photoacoustic Doppler shift at various average flow speeds. We have also observed the directional dependence of the photoacoustic Doppler shift. Our experiment is based on the continuous wave (cw) photoacoustic generation. It is the goal of noninvasively monitoring hemodynamics in functional photoacoustic imaging that motivates our study.
