MSE specializes in miniaturized optical sensors with three universal characteristics: minimum size, minimum weight, and minimum power consumption. We offer a complete line of Laser Doppler Velocimetry systems with unequaled compactness and ease of use.
The miniLDV™, ultraLDV™, microPro™, microV™, and microS™ are the smallest, lightest, and lowest-power-consumption sensors currently available for optical speed measurement. All three sensor types can measure speed as well as direction, but each is tuned for a specific measurement distance. The ultraLDV, designed for applications where sensitivity and precision are of utmost importance, the 2D miniLDV, a true two-component sensor, the 3D miniLDV, and the Integrated miniLDV, a miniLDV probe with built-in Processing Engine in a package about the size of a text book.
“LDV” stands for “Laser Doppler Velocimeter”—but unlike our competitors’, MSE’s probes are extremely easy to use because they do not require any complicated alignment after manufacturing.
A miniPIV system is a great complement to the above sensors and offers a wide range of fields of view.
The miniPCS™ is a particle sizer/counter based on Mie scattering theory, able to measure particle size over a wide range. Its built-in acquisition electronics make it especially suitable for field tests.
The flowLab™ is a table-top-sized water tunnel, perfect for small research projects, expositions, and classroom demonstrations.
