The benefit of the INL MIR technique is that it permits optical techniques, such as particle image velocimetry (PIV) and laser Doppler anemometry (LDA), to measure flow characteristics in flow fields and near surfaces, in passages and around objects having complicated geometries without introducing an intrusive probe into the flow field and without distortion of optical paths.
