Abstract

Improvements on the validation of a nonintrusive laser-based measurement technique are presented. This new technique, called global rainbow thermometry (GRT), is capable of determining the temperature and the size distributions of liquid droplets dispersed in a liquid or gaseous bulk. We propose a new data inversion algorithm that takes into account the whole rainbow pattern. Experimental validation of the GRT technique is performed for a liquid-liquid suspension. We performed the validation by comparing the measurements obtained with the GRT technique for the mean droplet temperature and size with the results obtained with alternative techniques.
