"Application of Functional Molecules for Turbulence Visualization and Global Pressure/Temperature Measurements"
Hirotaka Sakaue, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency
An interdisciplinary study on fluid mechanics and chemistry is presented. A luminescent molecule, one of the functional molecules, is applied for flow measurement as pressure- and temperature-sensitive paint (PSP/TSP). The present talk is focused on some developments of these sensors and their applications to flow visualization and global pressure/temperature measurements.
