Supersonicnitrogen flowfield measurements with the resonant Doppler velocimeter Academic Article uri icon


  • Laser-induced fluorescence of sodium atoms seeded into a supersonic nitrogen jet is used to determine the velocity, temperature, and pressure of the flow. The visible signal is sufficiently intense for spatially resolved flow visualization purposes.
