Spectroscopy and Optical Diagnostics for Gases

Authors: Hanson, Ronald K., Spearrin, R. Mitchell, Goldenstein, Christopher S.

  • Introduces readers to the methods and concepts of spectroscopic measurements of gases;
  • Adopts a practical perspective on key concepts from the vantage of engineers and experimentalists with applications in mind;
  • Confines discussion of underlying quantum physics to only that which is required to understand spectroscopic measurements, providing a very accessible presentation of gas‐phase spectroscopy across multiple disciplines of engineering and applied science;
  • Combines coverage of gas‐phase spectroscopy and optical diagnostic techniques;
  • Reinforces reader understanding with over 150 detailed figures and illustrations;

About this Textbook

This text provides an introduction to the science that governs the interaction of light and matter (in the gas phase). It provides readers with the basic knowledge to exploit the light-matter interaction to develop quantitative tools for gas analysis (i.e. optical diagnostics) and understand and interpret the results of spectroscopic measurements. The authors pair the basics of gas‐phase spectroscopy with coverage of key optical diagnostic techniques utilized by practicing engineers and scientists to measure fundamental flow‐field properties. The text is organized to cover three sub‐topics of gas‐phase spectroscopy: (1) spectral line positions, (2) spectral line strengths, and (3) spectral lineshapes by way of absorption, emission, and scattering interactions. The latter part of the book describes optical measurement techniques and equipment. Key subspecialties include laser induced fluorescence, tunable laser absorption spectroscopy, and wavelength modulation spectroscopy. It is ideal for students and practitioners across a range of applied sciences including mechanical, aerospace, chemical, and materials engineering.
