Laser velocimetry capable of measuring nanoscale motion or displacement normal to vibrational surface is always important in industry and scientific applications. However, measurement sensitivity down to sub-nanometer scale is always a challenge, and utilization of lock-in amplifiers is unavoidable. Measurement is then also limited to single-point detection. Here we report a laser Doppler velocimetry capable of non-contact detection in sub-nanometer scale down to sub-Hertz frequency in a Mach-Zehnder configuration without lock-in amplifiers. Environment perturbation in tens of nanometer scale can be removed by empirical mode decomposition. Lack of lock-in amplifiers promises this technology not limited to single-point detection.
