Laser-induced incandescence (LII) is ideally suited for obtaining high temporally and spatially resolved measurements of soot volume fraction in transient combustion phenomena. We demonstrate qualitative two-dimensional nonintrusive optical measurements of the soot evolution versus time from single fiber-supported burning fuel droplets of heptane and decane. Quantitative measurement of the soot volume fraction is also demonstrated through calibration of the LII signal against a small coflow ethylene diffusion flame.
