Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) images of flame emission are reported using a single direction of optical access. A Cassegrain system was designed with narrow depth of field. Images from this system are dominated by emission from the focused object plane with defocused contributions from out-of-plane structures. Translation of one mirror in the system allows for scanning the object plane through the flame. Images were taken at various depths to create a family of images. Reconstruction of the 3D flame structure was accomplished using a maximum entropy algorithm adapted for use with 3D imaging. Spatial resolution in the direction of imaging is examined using laminar flames with variable offset.
