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 $c^2$.
