Dual wavelength digital holography for 3D particle image velocimetry

S. Grare, S. Coëtmellec, D. Allano, G. Grehan, M. Brunel, D. Lebrun


A multi-exposure digital in-line hologram of a moving particle field is recorded by two different wavelengths and at different times. As a result, during the reconstruction step, each hologram can be independently and accurately reconstructed for each wavelength. This procedure enables avoiding the superimposition of particles images that may be close to each other in multi-exposure holography. The feasibility is demonstrated by using a standard particle sizing reticle and shows the potential of this method for particle velocity measurement.
