- "Determining the optimum wavelength pairs to use for molecular absorption thermometry based on the continuous-spectral lower-state energy"
An XL, Caswell AW, Lipor JJ, et al., Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer 112(14): 2355-2362 Sep 2011. A novel technique for selecting wavelengths that optimize the temperature precision of absorption-based thermometry is developed.
- "Quantifying the temperature sensitivity of practical spectra using a new spectroscopic quantity: Frequency-dependent lower-state energy"
An XL, Caswell AW, Sanders ST, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer 112 (5): 779-785 Mar 2011. Individual molecular spectroscopic transition can be characterized by a single, fixed parameter that describes the transition's temperature sensitivity. This lower-state energy is easily computed from measured or simulated spectra and is valuable for detailed assessment of the temperature sensitivity of practical spectra.

- "Application of time-division-multiplexed lasers for measurements of gas temperature and CH4 and H2O concentrations at 30 kHz in a high-pressure combustor"
Caswell AW, Kraetschmer T, Rein K, et al., Applied Optics 49 (26): 4963-4972 Sep 2010. Two time-division-multiplexed (TDM) sources based on fiber Bragg gratings were applied to monitor gas temperature, H2O mole fraction, and CH4 mole fraction using line-of-sight absorption spectroscopy in a practical high-pressure gas turbine combustor test article.
