    About Seong-Ho Jin

    Dr. Seong-Ho Jin has extensive experience in the use of conventional and alternative fuels in automotive and gas turbine applications, including study of renewable energy sources. His research in these fields has mainly used laser-based diagnostic techniques, including laser-induced fluorescence (LIF), laser-induced phosphorescence (LIP), laser Mie/Rayleigh/Raman scattering, and particle image velocimetry (PIV). He has applied these techniques to the imaging of fluid flows, premixed and non-premixed flames, fuel sprays and combustion in automotive engines and gas turbines applications.
