New Polarized-Depolarized Measurement Capability Extends Use of Raman/Rayleigh Methods to More Flame Types

Figure 1.  A second Raman/Rayleigh line-imaging detection unit allows researcher to simultaneously measure polarized and depolarized components of Raman scattering signals, helping to overcome fluorescence interference from soot precursors in hydrocarbon flames. Allowing single-shot measurements of all major species in nonsooting flames of simple fuels, such as H2 and CH4, spontaneous Raman scattering [...]

Sandia’s Basic Energy Sciences (BES) Chemical Sciences Program explores fundamental research in focused areas chemistry relevant to DOE missions. The focus of the Chemical Sciences research at Sandia is the production of energy from chemical processes, principally combustion. In addition to supporting research at Sandia, Chemical Sciences constructed and runs the Combustion Research Facility (CRF). [...]
