Abstract

Laser-induced exciplex fluorescence is a well-established technique for liquid-vapor imaging in evaporating sprays that offers phase-dependent spectrally separated emission. However, the accuracy of this approach is limited by substantial crosstalk from the liquid to vapor phase signals. This Letter shows the use of a combination of spectral and temporal filtering to reduce this crosstalk by three orders of magnitude and eliminate the need for temperature-dependent crosstalk corrections in the N,N-diethylmethylamine/fluorobenzene system. The relative decay rates of the liquid and vapor signals are quantified and show crosstalk-free imaging for monodisperse evaporating droplets over a wide range of exciplex tracer concentrations.
