Abstract

We present the preliminary results of a digital holographic system that can determine the two-dimensional velocity vector fields in several slices of a sample volume. A CCD camera directly records the diffraction patterns of small particles illuminated by a double-pulse laser diode. In fact, the diffraction can be interpreted as a convolution with a wavelet family of functions. The scale parameter a is related to the distance z between a particle and the CCD camera. Then, the intensity distributions in a plane located at a distance z are reconstructed by computing the wavelet components for the corresponding scale parameter a. Afterwards, a particle image velocimetry algorithm is applied to the numerically reconstructed pair of images. The feasibility of this technique is demonstrated for two simulated displacements.
