A Prototype Optical Flowmeter for the Measurement of Liquid Water Content

This report depicts the design and preliminary evaluation of an optical flowmeter for measurement of the liquid water content in warm clouds and rain showers. The sensing apparatus is a subminiature silicon photodiode which functions as a reflective scanner in measuring the water flow rate from a rotating bowl or centrifuge. The device is meant to be used on aircraft and requires relatively small power and simple laboratory calibration.
