For example, in planar laser induced (exciplex) fluorescence (PLIF/PLIEF) techniques, it is often essential to use non-fluorescing fuel surrogates with 10% or less tracer dopants [5, 6, 7, 8], though qualitative investigations using commercial gasoline are possible [9, 10].

An excimer laser (sometimes called an exciplex laser) is a form of UV laser used in the production of microelectronic devices and micromachining.
Based in Lanham, Md., Potomac Photonics is credited with inventing and manufacturing the waveguide Excimer laser (also referred to as an exciplex laser), a form of ultraviolet laser that commonly is used in eye surgery and semiconductor manufacturing.
For example with the Laser-Induced Exciplex Fluorescence (LIEF) method it is possible to image the liquid and the vapour phases of the injected fuel separately with two cameras.
Models have been developed on the basis of exciplex excitation, (17) chaos models of two-level systems excited under the constraint of the entropy maximum principle (27) and the van der Waals forces of stacked base pair interactions, (28) models of optical phase conjugation (29) and of a Hamiltonian that keeps coherent states coherent.
The explanation for the phenomena refers to a discovery made in 1994--that a pair of dissimilar molecules can form an exciplex, where excitation of the molecule with the lower electron affinity is followed by transfer of the other molecule, which is still in its ground state.
To achieve this trick, Bower calls upon the so-called exciplex technique, developed by Lynn Melton of the Univ.
These diagnostics include LIF, Laser Induced Exciplex Fluorescence (LIEF) for characterizing the fuel-air mixing formation and the evaporation phenomenon, and high-speed camera imaging with highly-zoomed lenses to gain an in-depth understanding of the film growth and droplet interaction process.
