This paper introduces a new design of laser vibrometer which allows high sensitivity, noncontact measurement of normal-to-surface target motion. The design includes use of a retro-reflective tape covered PZT-element to remove the sign ambiguity in surface velocity, which is inherent in the form of Doppler detection used in laser vibrometers. Utilization of this element offers the potential for a compact, cost effective design, suitable for portable, on-site use in engineering situations.
