The supersonic mixing of two-phase systems is investigated using a light scattering technique. It is shown that the liquid particle size distribution for sufficiently high Mach number is effectively monodisperse. From path-integrated measurements at two wavelengths in the IR region, the radial distribution of particle density is obtained by Abel inversion. It is shown that two distinct regions of the coaxial jets exhibit similarity behavior and that centerline density decay and mixing radii follow power law relations. It is also shown that centerline density may be obtained without Abel inversion. A non-interfering diagnostic system utilizing absorption spectroscopy and a tracer gas HF was also developed to study gas-gas axisymmetric mixing. Functions are developed for the interpretation of absorption data in terms of absorber density and temperature. Author
