Exp Fluids (2010) 49:749 DOI 10.1007/s00348-010-0968-z EDITORIAL Andreas Dreizler Volker Sick Published online: 31 August 2010 Springer-Verlag 2010 Combustion, as the dominating energy conversion process in high temporal resolution, species-speciﬁc excitation, and our society, can beneﬁt from further improvements to micrometer-sized spatial resolution allow measurements of increase efﬁciency, reduce pollutant emissions, and enable individual reaction rates, concentration and temperature the use of non-traditional fuels. This challenge is supported proﬁles in well-deﬁned laminar ﬂames to develop and test substantially by laser diagnostics providing detailed insights chemical kinetic models, and the nature of turbulence- into the underlying physical and chemical processes. In chemistry and chemistry-surface interactions. Advances in recognition of laser diagnostics as a key technology, this instrumentation have also enabled non-intrusive measure- special issue on Laser Diagnostics in Combustion intends to ments in industrial environments not only to investigate highlight the recent developments and provide an overview technical devices such as internal combustion engines and of the current state-of-the-art. gas turbines but also as sensors integrated for control The guest editors would like to dedicate this special purposes in large-scale power plants. issue of Experiments in Fluids to Prof. Ju ¨ rgen Wolfrum of We are grateful to the authors who contributed to this the University of Heidelberg on the occasion of his 70th special issue and the reviewers who provided feedback in birthday to recognize his many contributions to the ﬁeld of a timely manner to ensure an on-schedule publication. combustion research over the past 40 years and for the Prof. C.
