Major Goals The project had three primary objectivesgoals as proposed. These three goals were 1. Determine the feasibility and implementation of the co-doped ratio method to be used to obtain improved fractional sensitivity for aerosol phosphor thermometry APT.2. Determine the feasibility of the Mie ratio method to provide improved accuracy for APT measurements. 3. Demonstrate improvements using the two methods in a heated air jet. Accomplishments Detailed accomplishments for the project are contained in the attached PDF document. Training Opportunities The project was staffed by a post doc. The post doc for the project was able to continue their training as a researcher and in particular to develop their ability to independently perform research. Results Dissemination Results from the work were disseminated via five conference presentations, a conference abstract, two conference papers, and two journal articles. Results for the co-doped aerosol phosphor thermometry APT method were presented at the 37th International Symposium on Combustion in Dublin, Ireland July 29-August 3, 2018, followed by publication in the biennial Proceedings of the Combustion Institute PROCI journal. Results for the scattering-referenced aerosol phosphor thermometry SRAPT technique were disseminated in a conference paper and presentation at the 2018 Spring Technical Meeting for the Central States Section of the Combustion Institute Minneapolis, MN, May 20-22, 2018 and in a presentation at the Inaugural International Conference on Phosphor Thermometry ICPT - Glasgow, UK, July 25-27, 2018. Following the ICPT conference, we were invited to submit a journal article for a special issue of Measurement and Science Technology, which was recently accepted for publication.
