This paper considers the problem of estimating acoustic particle velocity and convection velocity in the air by means of Laser Doppler Velocity (LDV) measurement. Closed-form for the Cramér-Rao Bounds (CRB) on the estimates of the velocity parameters, for a sine wave excitation, are derived and simplified expressions are given. Moreover, a Maximum… (More)
It is shown that the standard beamformer technique is inadequate for both the source location and the measurement of a simple dipole and that this is due to the assumption of monopole propagation in the calculation of the phase weights used to steer the focus of the array. A numerical simulation is used to illustrate the problem and to develop a correction… (More)
