Title: In‚Äźcylinder Optical Diagnostics
Presentation abstract:
In this presentation I will present a review of the last decade of optical diagnostics work undertaken in Oxford
investigating internal combustion engines. Topics covered will include quantitative fuel distribution measurements with
Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence (PLIF), temperature measurements with LIGS (Laser Induced Grating Scattering) and a
novel combination of PLIF and LIGS. The talk will conclude by discussing some of our ongoing work and thoughts for the
