Optical Measurement Solutions Advanced Combustion Diagnostics Due to their non-intrusive nature, optical diagnostics offer unique capabilities for in-situ multi-parameter reactive flow field measurements even in the harsh environment of practical combustion systems. These can not be achieved using conventional, i.e. non-optical probe techniques. Optical diagnostics contribute significantly to the reduction of combustion generated pollution, particularly the greenhouse gases CO2, CH4 and H2O. LaVision‘s Expertise LaVision has over 25 years of expertise and experience in the field of...

High-Speed Combustion Imaging Time-resolved (Laser) Imaging Most mixing and combustion phenomena are highly turbulent processes where diagnostic tools require high spatial and temporal resolution. Truly time-resolved laser imaging requires repetition rates in the kHz-range to visualize the development of unsteady or statistical phenomena such as flame vibrations. These diagnostic tools have become available with the development of powerful laser sources and sensitive detection units, like intensified CMOS cameras. 4modular image intensifiers: The modular design adds UV-sensitivity and short...
