Emission and Absorption Studies of Hydrocarbon Combustion Products

Volume 12, Number 4 (Aug. 1958) Page 126-127

The National Bureau of Standards has made a spectroscopic study of the infrared radiation from combustion gases under the sponsorship of the Wright Air Development Center. This work was done by G. A. Hornbeck and L. O. Olsen of the combustion controls laboratory to provide information that may make possible the measurement of jet-engine and gas-turbine exhaust temperatures. Ultimately such data should aid in the development of a flight-type radiation pyrometer to indicate and control the temperature of the hot gases which form the working medium for jet engines.
