Laser fiber optic diffractional sensor and its aplication for flow measurements

With the purpose of performance optimization of a fiber-optical diffraction type sensor used for measuring turbulent pulsations in flows the problem of laser radiation scattering on the optical fiber is considered. Data on performances of scattering and results of test measuring of turbulence in airflow are presented.
