CRF Researchers Make Direct Kinetic Measurements of Criegee Intermediate

Post, May 29, 2013 • Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories’ Combustion Research Facility, the University of Manchester, Bristol University, University of Southampton, and Hong Kong Polytechnic have successfully measured reaction rates of a second Criegee intermediate, CH3CHOO, and proven that the reactivity of the atmospheric chemical depends strongly on which way the molecule is twisted....

New Take on an Old Laser Diagnostic Opens Up Additional Avenues for Combustion Research

Post, May 29, 2013 • Coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS)—one of the most powerful gas-phase spectroscopic techniques—has been widely used and refined over the last 40 years in many fields of chemical physics, from chemical sensing and standoff detection of biowarfare agents to measuring molecular dynamics. CARS has also been applied to numerous combustion research...
