Laser Spectroscopy for in Situ Diagnostics

B. Attal-Trétout, F. Grisch, D. Packan, I. Ribet-Mohamed & M. Lefebvre
Laser spectroscopy based on nonlinear processes such as four wave mixing and laser-induced gratings or based on spontaneous Raman and Thomson scattering is widely used, from near IR to near UV, to probe reactive media. The bulk of this monograph is devoted to the application of these techniques to the specific area of plasma, combustion and hypersonic flow field. For each technique a brief description of the signal amplitude is given from which spectral and/or...
