This paper discusses the various considerations leading to the optimization of a laser Doppler anemometer for measurements in the flows of gases, liquids, and solids. The requirements placed on the various parameters of the optics by the experiment are discussed in general for different modes of operation. Expressions determining these optical parameters in certain instances given by various authorities are presented and compared. This includes such topics as: laser power, particle size, measuring volume size, optical variation in transmitting and receiving optics, and photodetector selection.
