2012 Photonic Doppler Velocimetry (PDV) Workshop

Sandia National Laboratories is sponsoring the 7th workshop devoted to photonic Doppler velocimetry (PDV) in Albuquerque, NM on October 22-23, 2012



Fiber-based interferometry has made significant inroads within the dynamic compression community. The simplicity and robustness of PDF initially led to rapid proliferation in areas where other techniques do not work well. While first generation systems badly handled low velocity transients, PDV is now applied in tandem with or in place of traditional wave profile diagnostics. Velocities ranging from cm/s to 20+ km/s are accessible with commercially available equipment, opening up a vast range of experimental possibilities.

Workshop Agenda

The workshop will be held at the Schiff Auditorium located in Technical Area I of Sandia National Laboratories. The workshop will feature tutorials, contributed talks, vendor presentations, and guided discussions over two full days. Subjects of interest include:

A more detailed agenda will be made available in the future.  Speakers that would like to contribute a talk should contact Daniel Dolan with a working title as soon as possible.
