Correct analysis of laser anemometers can only be done in terms of electromagnetic waves. In this paper the wave theory of laser anemometers was developed and applied to the discussion of the follwoing topics: Doppler shift velocity measurement and heterodyne detection; signal sources (single particle, multiple particle, extraneous, etc.); basic types of laser anemometers and their principles of operation (dual beam, dual scatter, ref. beam); and signal properties (pedestal, visibility, SNR, spatial resolution, multiple particle effects, coherence aperture effects).
