Recent determinations of the temperature dependence of acetone fluorescence have permitted the application of acetone planar laser-induced fluorescence imaging, which was already popular for mapping concentration, to the measurement of temperature. With a view toward developing temperature-imaging diagnostics, we present atmospheric-pressure fluorescence and absorption results acquired with excitation at eight wavelengths across the absorption feature of acetone and at temperatures from 300 to… CONTINUE READING
