We have applied a Raman spectroscopic approach to the analysis of aviation fuel mixtures. The fuel mixtures chosen are fuels blended to military specification, namely, JP-4, JP-5, JP-7, and JP-8. We expect that the Raman spectral bands from such fuel mixtures may serve to provide a clear and reproducible standard for the determination of fuel properties, suitable for the evaluation of both commercial and military aviation fuel products.
