Abstract: In order to measure small diffusion coefficients of miscible fluids, the deflected beam technique was improved by introducing a method whereby deflections corresponding to different positions of the laser beam were compared. The method requires only knowledge of the vertical position difference DELTAz of the laser beam at different times, without any requirement for an assignment of the initial vertical coordinate of the fluid interface.
