|Title:||Laser-optical fiber Bragg grating anemometer for measuring gas flows: application to measuring the electric wind||Contributor(s):||Lamb, D (author); Hooper, A (author)||Publication Date:||2006||DOI:||10.1364/OL.31.001035||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/125||Abstract:||A novel laser-optical fiber Bragg grating anemometer (FBGA) has been devised for measuring the speed of a moving gas in the range 0-1.5ms‑1. As a test, the FBGA was applied to measuring the speed of the electric wind generated in the particularly harsh, high-voltage environment of a dc, negative-polarity, partial (corona) discharge in atmospheric air. The instrument proved more stable and yielded an order-of-magnitude improvement in sensitivity (Δv≈4×10‑3ms‑1) compared with other optical-fiber-based anemometers. On-axis wind speeds ranging from zero to 1.1ms‑1 were measured in the vicinity of the corona discharge.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Optics Letters, 31(8), p. 1035-1037||Publisher:||American Optical Society||Place of Publication:||Washington, USA||ISSN:||0146-9592||Field of Research (FOR):||020503 Nonlinear Optics and Spectroscopy||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 168
