Application of Raman Scattering to Gasdynamic Flows

  • J. W. Daiber


We discuss application of Raman scattering diagnostics to several practical measurement situations. These situations involve turbulent mixing in high-pressure nonsteady flows, short-duration steady flows, chemical and electrical excitation of laser media, and mixing in atmospheric simulation studies. The capabilities of Raman scattering techniques are compared to those of alternative techniques, and some experimental results are presented.
