Quantitative passive scalar measurements were performed in an incompressible planar mixing layer at Re δ up to 104 using planar laser-induced fluorescence of acetone seeded into one side of the layer. Probability density functions compiled from sets of images showed a preferred mixture composition, favoring the high-speed fluid, which extended across the layer. This preferred composition produced non-marching PDFs and an inflection in the average mixture fraction profile. The spatial resolution of the experiment was found to be sufficient to accurately measure the fraction of mixed fluid within the layer. The mixed fluid fraction was found to increase to an asymptotic value of 0.5 by Re δ ≈ 5,000, the approximate location of turbulent transition, in contrast to high Schmidt number experiments which show minimal mixing before the transition point.
