Abstract

IN a recent letter on the above subject, Prof. W. T. David1 points out that after flame has travelled through an inflammable gaseous mixture, the gases remaining emit luminous (visible and ultra-violet) radiation for a considerable period of time if their temperature is kept up. In an investigation carried out at the United States Bureau of Standards, accounts of which have already appeared 2,3,4, evidence of prolonged emission in the infra-red was obtained from observations of flame in the cylinder of an engine delivering power.
