Abstract:

The feasibility of measuring slip velocities by observing the Doppler shift in electron beam excited radiation is investigated. The expected Doppler shift in the 4277 A line of argon gas is 0.00276 A. Line broadening effects are dominated by Doppler broadening, which at flow conditions near the leading edge, results in a half-intensity width of 0.00146 A. Using a Fabry-Perot interferometer, the line shift and Doppler profiles are readily resolved near the leading edge. A few suggestions are made for increasing the signal level, including crossing the electron beam with an argon ion laser beam. Author
