Dr. Zhiwei Sun works on laser diagnostics in combustion and other challenging reacting flows. In his research, novel optical, laser-based techniques are used to visualize the key parameters in flames/flows in high spatial and temporal resolution. He also focuses on the development of unique new techniques for quantitative measurements of reacting flows that are reacting or under high radiation.
