Ultrafast Laser Diagnostics

Research of the Propulsion and Power group on Mobile Ultrafast Laser Diagnostics at Aero-Propulsion Facilities

  • Simultaneous temperature-, species- and density-field imaging obtained with a single coherent technique 

  • Mobile auto-synchronized femtosecond/picosecond laser system

  • Innovative ultrafast laser diagnostics for probing critical mechanisms of  renewable high-energy carriers (H2 and biofuels) in aero‐propulsion

  • Capability to deliver benchmark experimental data to develop models and improve the fidelity of numerical simulation
