Apiwat Blue Chiang Mai Absorption Spectroscopy image 226 pixels, three column size

We host advanced capabilities for measurement of reactive species in gaseous and plasma phases. While our main research focusses on exploitation of low-temperature plasmas for different applications, our expertise traverses many areas. Our state-of-the-art advanced diagnostic techniques can be utilised in many areas. If you are interesed in any of these or other techniques please contact us at deborah.oconnell@york.ac.uk. Different collaboration options are available from pay as you go to larger research projects.

Our capabilities include:

  • Pico- and nano-second laser spectroscopy for one- and two-photon laser induced flourescence (LIF & TALIF) e.g. for measurements of various radicals including O, N, NO, H, OH, C.
  • UV Absorption spectroscopy for reactive species measurements e.g. ozone, hydroxl, nitric oxide.
  • Fourier-transform infra-red spectroscopy (FTIR) for measuremements of reactive species including CO, CO2.
  • Diode laser absorption spectroscopy for measurements of metastables e.g. of argon and helium metastables, and precise gas temperature measurements.
  • ICCD cameras for fast imaging.
