Description

Updated and expanded from the original Japanese edition, Laser-Aided Diagnostics of Gases and Plasmas takes a unique approach in treating laser-aided diagnostics. The book unifies the subject by joining applications instead of describing each application as a totally separate system. In taking this approach, it highlights the relative strengths of each method and shows how they can complement each other in the study of gases and plasmas.

The first part of the book presents a general introduction to the laser-aided study of gases and plasmas, including the various principles and hardware needed for each method, while the second part describes the applications of each general system in detail.

Beneficial to a wide spectrum of academic and industrial researchers, this book provides a solid examination of the various options and methods available when involved in the analysis and diagnostics of gases and plasmas.

Reviews

"Professors Muraoka and Maeda are longtime pioneers in laser-aided diagnostics of plasmas and gases. This book provides a wide-ranging unified description of techniques including their principles, applications, and laser hardware. The text can be strongly recommended either for graduate students or for people working in diagnostics of plasmas and gases."

- Dr. Jayr de Amorim Filho, Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica, Brazil
