A newly-developed device using a dual-sensor film probe (a miniature X-type fiber film probe) is described for a real-time measurement of multi-dimensional turbulence in gas-liquid two-phase flows. Particular emphases are directed towards developing a hardware method of phase-detection and -separation in CTA signal processings. Results obtained appear quite successful and promising at the moment. The system and the methods for signal processing proposed in this study have a wide applicability to two-phase flow measurements.
