Your impression & future plan
It is a great honor to receive the Best Paper Award from the Combustion Society of Japan. In this paper, the ignition characteristics of DME cool flames under elevated pressures were investigated by measuring HCHO molecule concentration with Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS), and the inhibition effect of cool flame reactivity with increasing pressure has been clarified. We believe that our experimental approach based on advanced laser diagnostics to cool flame phenomena, of which the importance of elucidation has increased recently, has been highly evaluated. By further developing the technology and knowledge obtained from this study, we would like to contribute to the realization of decarbonization in the field of combustion.
