From the automotive industry to blood flow monitoring, optical techniques and laser diagnostics are becoming integral parts in engineering and medical instrumentation. Written by leading global experts from industry, academic groups, and laboratories, this volume provides an international perspective on both existing applications and leading-edge research. With a focus on advanced engineering applications, the book discusses the application of techniques such as laser Doppler velocimetry, particle image velocimetry, and planar laser-induced fluorescence to automotive engines, burners, and gas turbines. It also covers the flow, sprays, and combustion in direct-injection gasoline engines as well as the fundamental structure of flames as revealed by complementary laser techniques. In addition, the book explores laser diagnostic techniques used in the biomedical field and reviews novel research on the use of fiber-optic sensor techniques for structural integrity and physical condition monitoring.
