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.
