Separation of time-averaged turbulence components by laser-induced fluorescence Academic Article uri icon


  • Turbulence is measured by resonant fluorescence of sodium atoms seeded into a supersonic nitrogen jet. By varying the frequency of the pumping laser, the mean square velocity, temperature, and pressure fluctuations (as well as their correlations) may be determined. 1983 American Institute of Physics.
