Abstract

The time-delayed detection of soot incandescence is demonstrated to discriminate against other laser-induced signals that have shorter decay times. This technique exhibits high sensitivity and no need for any verification of the spectral content of the signal; it is promising for two-dimensional imaging applications in hostile environments, such as in practical flame and combustion chambers, in which it permits an easy visualization of sooty regions.
