As described in previous reports, this AASERT funding has provided support for graduate student training in high speed optical flow diagnostics. Funds were provided for the purchase of a 20 MHz rate framing camera Hadland Imacon 792, which was used to capture a pair of rapidly sequenced Rayleigh scattering images, using a double pulsed NdYAG laser system purchased from parent grant AFOSR support. During the current reporting period, work has progressed on a synergistic program to develop a burst mode laser system, which will, ultimately, provide the capability to obtain approximately 30 rapidly sequenced images. This work is closely coupled with the parent grant F4962O0-92-J-0217 and a collaborative AFOSR program with Profs. Alexander Smits and Garry Brown F49620-93-1-0064.
