With the invention of the Microflown sensor, acoustic particle velocity has become a directly measurable quantity. Since then, many new applications have been developed exploiting its broadband directionality and acoustic near-field response. Together with a regular sound pressure sensor, the entire acoustic vector can now be thoroughly characterized. As a result, sound probes comprising both sound pressure and particle velocity sensors can be used for a variety of applications. Over the last 20 years, hundreds of scientific publications have demonstrated many possible uses of the technology. However, there is still a large amount of ongoing research where the use of particle velocity measurements can yield novel key solutions.
