Laser anemometry is used for the precise measurement of the movement of matter in its various states, solid, liquid and gas. It is therefore of interest to many people and has become widely practised.1 Velocity, turbulence intensity, shear stress in fluids and many other quantities may be measured, yet in no way disturbing the motion of interest or having to employ calibration, as with mechanical probe techniques.
