The engine combustion network recommends two different imaging-based diagnostics for the measurement of diesel spray ignition delay and lift-off length, respectively. To measure ignition delay, high-speed imaging of broadband luminosity, spectrally filtered to limit collected wavelengths below 600 nm, is recommended. This diagnostic is often referred to as broadband natural luminosity. For lift-off length measurements, the engine combustion network recommends imaging of OH* chemiluminescence. This diagnostic requires using an image-intensified camera to detect narrowly filtered light around 310 nm. Alternatively, it has been shown that the lift-off length can be measured using broadband natu..
