Abstract:

A laser velocimeter was developed for the measurement of the velocity of particles in the size range from 10 to 100 micrometers diameter and velocities up to 5000 meters per second. The instrument was successfully employed in accelerator tests which were conducted during the development of a reentry nose tip erosion and ablation facility. Author
