Interferometric Gas Diagnostics by the Hook Method

  • Martin C. E. Huber


Refractive index measurements have long been a well established tool for investigating aerodynamic flow patterns where number densities were determined from interferograms taken with a light source of moderate spectral bandwidth. However, the number density so derived gives no indication of the composition nor thermodynamic state of the gas under investigation; rather, its properties and composition have to be assumed.
