Transportation accidents, such as trucks crashing on a highway or rockets failing on a launch pad, can create catastrophic fires. Sandia National Laboratories researchers have developed 3-D measurement techniques based on digital in-line holography because it’s important to understand how burning droplets of fuel are generated and behave in such extreme cases.
