Corrections to facilitate planar imaging of particle concentration in particle-laden flows using Mie scattering, part 1: collimated laser sheets.


Planar nephelometry is a laser-based technique of imaging the light scattered from particles to provide information about the local number density of these particles. In many seeded flows of practical interest, such as pulverized coal flames, particle loadings are sufficiently high for the incident laser beam to be severely attenuated. Measurements in these… (More)
