Four problems encountered in making transverse velocity measurements with an LDA are alignment of the optical system, velocity bias correction, avoidance of incomplete signal bias, and collecting sufficient data. Each problem is discussed and the method used to overcome each is presented for the case of measuring particle transverse velocities in a laboratory-scale electrostatic precipitator.
