# Projects

#### CNT synthesis

A major review of the quantitative aspects of carbon nanotube formation using floating catalyst chemical vapour deposition

#### Closing in on turbulent flames

In this project we are trying to use a known spectrum of turbulence to understand the mixing rate (and reaction) of turbulent flames.

#### LII-PIV

Laser-induced incandescence particle image velocimetry (LII-PIV): a new technique for discriminating droplet and gas velocity.

#### LITGS

Laser-induced grating spectroscopy: LITGS signal obtained over a sooty ethylene flame: frequency proportional to $c^2$.

# Jobs

## Positions

• DTA fellows. We are always looking for talented academic researchers interested in reacting flows and energy. If you are a UK or EU applicant with top credentials, you may be eligible for a doctoral training fellowship. Top international students may also apply, but funding may not cover the full fees.

• CDT Aerosol positions We are part of a new Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosols. If you are interested in the topic, contact us or the CDT organisers directly.
