state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment is available for use by all center
members. The Center has a very significant investment in both coherent
and incoherent laser-based diagnostic techniques for measuring major and minor
species, velocity, temperature, droplet size and size distribution, and soot
volume fraction. In addition to world-class Analytical Chemistry and
Visualization Core labs, the center has its own analytical chemistry capability
for extractive sampling measurements of permanent gases and hydrocarbon species
up to multi-ring PAHs.
