The Energy & Emissions Research Lab employs a wide range of advanced and unique experimental infrastructure that supports a wide range of research projects both in the lab and in the field.  Some of these include:

  • Carleton Vertical Flare Facility
  • Globally-unique Sky-LOSA technology for remotely quantifying black carbon in plumes
  • Optical measurement technologies lab
  • Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)
  • Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV)
  • Cavity ringdown gas analysis systems
  • Fourier Transforn Infrared (FTIR) gas analyzer
  • Particle analysis instruments including thermo-optical and photoacoustic systems
  • Tuneable diode laser absorption spectroscopy systems
  • Field-deployable optical and mechanical apparatus for measurements of flare flow rates
  • Zone-rated sample extraction systems
  • Laser-induced incandescence (LII) and elastic light scattering (ELS) system for in-flame measurements of black carbon
