Are you interested in what you can do with lasers? Maybe you have studied atomic physics and quantum mechanics and are keen on learning how light and matter interact? Or is your focus to learn how various techniques can be used to study reacting- and non-reacting flows, and in the long run aid in the development of a more sustainable society? Whether or not your aim is academic or more from an engineering viewpoint, this is the course for you!
The course deals with laser-diagnostic methods and their abilities of measuring various parameters relevant for many chemical and physical processes, such as temperature, concentration and flow velocity. The underlying physics on which the laser-diagnostic methods are based is highlighted. Also the quality of the measurements is discussed in terms of accuracy and precision. Major parts of the course involve exersices, laboratory exersices and also a small project.
