Abstract

A miniaturized sensor head for the optical measurement of velocities of fluids based on laser Doppler velocimetry is demonstrated. Holographic optical elements mounted on a glass substrate are used for beam splitting and deflection. Volume holograms in dichromated gelatin exhibit good optical efficiency (75% transmission of a cascade of two holographic optical elements). With diffractive devices one can achieve achromatic behavior that makes the sensor insensitive to wavelength drifts or mode hopping of a semiconductor laser.
