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

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 is less probable.

Positions

PhD student interested in nanoparticle formation, using laser-based techniques to understand the formation and agglomeration of particles. Top academic credentials with background in physics, chemistry or engineering.
