Abstract:

Equipment was acquired under the Defense University Research Instrumentation Program DURIP. The equipment, summarized in the report, was utilized to extend the measurement capabilities of diode laser spectroscopy to include carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen. These species are of particular importance as indicators of airbreathing propulsion performance and because they are subject to environmental regulation.
