Ultra-High-Speed, Time-Resolved Spontaneous Raman Scattering Spectroscopy in Combustion

In combustion, until recently only two temporal optical gating schemes were available to increase signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for time-resolved spontaneous Raman scattering (SRS) spectroscopy. Dr. Jun Kojima of the Ohio Aerospace Institute has developed another advanced technique for measuring time-resolved SRS spectroscopy in combustion.
