Unique research provides greener rocket propulsion systems
The number of rocket launches expects to increase in the future. Alexis Bohlin, researcher in Space Systems at Luleå University of Technology, wants to contribute to greener rocket engine fuel and components that provide less climate impact. – The goal is to improve the efficiency and reduce emissions of modern rocket technology, says Alexis Bohlin. To achieve intended result, Alexis Bohlin will use unique laser diagnostics. There are many benefits to using this method. For example, laser diagnostics can quantify important properties such as temperature, substance concentration, and density of the chemically reacting flow without contact and thus does not interfere with the inherent chemical process at the measuring area. In addition, the information is delivered with excellent room and time resolution and with room-temporal correlation.
