Principles of Laser-Doppler Flowmetry
Light scattering has long been used to probe properties of bulk matter. In transparent media such as air or clear water, measurements can be analyzed easily and remote sensing can be done over great distances. The basic principles relating the intensity of scattered light to underlying molecular structure were established by Lord Rayleigh in his classic 1871 paper explaining why the sky appears to be blue.
