Microscale Laser-Induced Fluorescence Method for Non-Intrusive Temperature Measurement
Date of this Version11-11-2007
Ratiometric Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) Thermometry is applied for temperature measurements in a ‘T’ junction, using microscale visualization methods. Rhodamine B (RhB) and Rhodamine 110 (Rh110) are used as the temperature-dependent and temperature-independent dye, respectively. The temperature responses of the two dyes were carefully measured for different concentrations. A novel normalization procedure for the calibration curve is proposed to render the technique system-independent. The mixing plane between a hot and a cold fluid stream for three different temperatures and three different flow rate ratios is visualized using 4X and 10X magnifications.
