Dense Wavelength-Multiplexed Sensors for Tomography in Hypersonic Flows Using Diode-Laser Technology
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Zolo Technologies and Stanford University propose to develop and demonstrate an innovative combustion sensor technology that employs tunable diode laser spectroscopy implemented in a novel way to diagnose the SCRAMJET flow field for ground test evaluation. The sensor will enable the end-user to detect and quantify non-uniformities in the spatial distribution of temperature and species concentrations in order to optimize combustion efficiency. The ability to observe non-uniformities directly is deemed critical since complete combustion requires that some turbulent-induced mixing occur in the flow field that will produce local non-uniformities.
