Dual-Pump CARS Measurements of Temperature and Oxygen in a Turbulent Methanol-Fueled Pool Fire
We present broadband, dual-pump coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) measurements of N2 and O2 in 2 m diameter methanol pool fires. The design of the fiber-optically coupled CARS instrumentExpand

Diagnostic development for determining the joint temperature/soot statistics in hydrocarbon-fueled pool fires : LDRD final report.
A joint temperature/soot laser-based optical diagnostic was developed for the determination of the joint temperature/soot probability density function (PDF) for hydrocarbon-fueled meter-scaleExpand
Thermokinetic/mass-transfer analysis of carbon capture for reuse/sequestration.
Effective capture of atmospheric carbon is a key bottleneck preventing non bio-based, carbon-neutral production of synthetic liquid hydrocarbon fuels using CO{sub 2} as the carbon feedstock. Here weExpand
