Abstract

Ozone tagging velocimetry is developed for unseeded velocity measurement of air flows. An ozone line is photochemically created by an ArF excimer laser. After a fixed time delay the ozone line is imaged with a KrF excimer laser sheet (248 nm) that photodissociates the ozone and produces vibrationally excited O2. The O2 is excited by the same 248-nm light through the Schumann–Runge band, B Σ u - 3 ( v = 0 , 2 ) X Σ g - 3 ( v = 6 , 7 ). An intensified CCD camera records the O2 fluorescence from the initial and the final line positions to permit the velocity profile along the line to be determined.
