The potential for active control of low Reynolds number boundary layers using synthetic jet generators (SJG) has been established. The results from a four stage experimental study are presented in which the operational and geometric parameters of a rectangular slot choice SJG are optimised. A time-dependent, analysis of the SJG velocity profile is carried out in quiescent conditions prior to application of the SJG in (i) a nominally zero pressure gradient at plate boundary layer (l.54 > < l05 < ReX < 2.86 >
