Density tagging velocimetry, a novel optical technique for point-wise measurement of flow velocity is proposed here. This new method is based on the detection and subsequent tracking of a local density variation deliberately inserted in the flow. The experimental implementation comprising tagging, detection, and velocity evaluation reverts to and combines principles of well-known optical measurement techniques. Density tagging velocimetry has the potential for in-flight application and is particularly suited for measuring flow velocities in regions where the use of tracer particles is difficult or undesired. The applicability of this new technique is illustrated by a jet flow measurement.
