Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In this translation of the original Japanese edition, Muraoka (engineering sciences, Kyushu U., Japan) and Maeda (computer science and electrical engineering, Kyushu U., Japan) explain laser-aided diagnostics as a unified subject, rather than taking each application as a separate system. They highlight the relative strengths of each method and show how they can compliment each other in the study of gases and plasmas. The first section offers a general introduction to the laser-aided study of gases and plasmas, while the second section examines the applicability of these methods to a variety of gaseous and plasma systems.
