Applicability of Femtosecond Laser Electronic Excitation Tagging in Combustion Flow Field Velocity Measurements

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Femtosecond laser electronic excitation tagging (FLEET) is a molecular tagging velocimetry technique that can be applied in combustion flow fields, although detailed studies of its application in combustion are still needed. We report the applicability of FLEET in premixed CH4–air flames. We found that FLEET can be applied in all of the combustion areas (e.g., the unburned region, the burned region and the reaction zone). The FLEET signal in the unburned region is significantly higher than that in the burned region. This technique is suitable for both lean and rich CH4–air combustion flow fields and its performance in lean flames is better than that in rich flames.
