"Spectroscopic Measurements: An Introduction to the Fundamentals by Mark A. Linne is the place where you find - and understand - key ingredients of modern combustion diagnostics. For many applications, optical diagnostics play an increasingly important role. However, only the most basic descriptions of the underlying physics are often found in journal articles or textbooks, providing little guidance to the graduate student or the combustion engineer who may wish to familiarize himself or herself with the quantitative aspects and procedures. For this purpose, Linne's book is a top address to review physical principles and necessary equations in a concise and well-organized form. I have used material from this book in an advanced spectroscopy class and found it a valuable complement to textbooks on spectroscopy and reviews on combustion diagnostics.
If you are the one to actually perform and evaluate a diagnostics experiment in a complex system like a combustion device, you will appreciate this book as a condensed reference for the related physics machinery - a first-of-its-kind document which guides you through the necessary steps and which spares you to convert formalisms from many different sources."
