Abstract

The first application of a microlens array beam homogenizer to planar laser measurement techniques in combustion diagnostics is demonstrated. The beam homogenizing properties of two microlens arrays in combination with a Fourier lens for widespread applications are presented. An uniform line profile with very little temporal fluctuations of the spatial intensity distribution was generated resulting in a significant reduction of measurement noise and enabling an easier and faster signal processing.
