The method’s primary goal is to determine simultaneously the bulk and the time verying part of the molecule velocity distribution using a heterodyne laser induced fluorescence technique.  Used in biology, chemistry and plasma physics laser-induced fluorescence is a well known technique to resolve the bulk velocity distribution of probed molecules and atoms in a medium.  The novel approach is aimed at determining not only the bulk distribution, but also the time-varying velocity distribution.  The two parts of the velocity distribution are key in the characterization of a physical system.
