This research program represents a combined experimental and theoretical effort with the following three major objectives 1 to develop high-resolution, multi-dimensional, quantitative, imaging diagnostic capabilities for obtaining direct experimental measurements of the fine scale structure associated with the molecular mixing and chemical reaction processes in turbulent flow 2 to use this measurement technique to experimentally determine the physical characteristics of the fine structure associated with molecular mixing and chemical reactions in turbulent flows and 3 to incorporate results from these measurements into an improved understanding of the molecular mixing, chemical reaction, and local extinction processes in reacting turbulent flows.
