Abstract
Zolo Technologies and our partner, Stanford University, propose to develop diagnostic techniques based upon multiplexed, tunable diode laser spectroscopy (TDLAS) for gas turbines in aeropropulsion and power generation applications. Multiplexed TDLAS is a powerful diagnostic technique that has proven useful for measuring temperature and species concentration in SCRAMJET and pulsed detonation aeropropulsion systems with limited spatial resolution. However, application to gas turbine engines presents unique challenges because of high pressures and limited optical access. During the proposed project, we intend to address these issues allowing multiplexed TDLAS to improve efficiency and reduce emissions from operation of gas turbine engines.
