English term or phrase: N branches
A switch and multiple pairs of pitch and catch optics can be used for serial probing of a gas species at different
locations throughout the combustion chamber. For situations in which averaged results are sufficient, serial probing of
different beam paths is acceptable. However, certain applications require instantaneous probing of an entire sensing
grid. For example, certain combustion process flows exhibits high-frequency fluctuations, or the flow may only exist for
a short period of time, e.g. shock tubes or tunnels. In such a case a 1 X N splitter may be used to divide the probe beam
into N branches each of which occupies a different position on the grid. Since the entire grid is illuminated simultaneously,
a two dimensional analysis can be generated very quickly. However, simultaneous two dimensional analysis may require
that each component on the catch side be reproduced for each beam path including demultiplexers, detectors, electronics
such as A/D cards and, to some extent, computers.
