Abstract:

Progress is reported for the past year of an interdisciplinary program to innovate modern diagnostic techniques applicable to combustion and plasma flows. Research topics include 1 digital flowfield imaging, including temporally and spatially resolved species and temperature imaging using planar laser induced fluorescence PLIF 2 quantitative particle imaging in spray flames using planar Mie scattering PMS 3 quantitative velocity and pressure imaging using variations of PLIF 4 advanced solid state cameracomputer systems for high speed and high resolution recording, processing and display of flow image data 5 fiber optic absorptionfluorescence sensors employing tunable UV, visible and IR laser sources for species measurements 6 laser wavelength modulation spectroscopy, using rapid-scanning UV, visible and IR laser sources, for absorption and fluorescence measurements of species, temperature and absorption lineshapes 7 plasma diagnostics utilizing laser induced fluorescence and wavelength modulation techniques 8 laser interactions with plasmas and combustion gases and 9 investigation of other new diagnostic concepts.
