Abstract
Tunable ArF and KrF lasers are being used to produce species-, space-, and time-resolved images of complex gaseous media. These media may be analyzed for composition, density, temperature, or flow velocities with the observation of various laser induced light emissions. The techniques are, in general, highly selective, sensitive, and nonintrusive. We discuss methods that can yield an increase in signal, or that allow desired signals to be differentiated from interfering emissions, by the use of appropriately polarized lasers or by polarization analysis of emitted light.
