Abstract - We report preliminary research into a novel tomography system for application to gas- phase subjects. The technique is based on fluorescence, using collimated sources and detectors. It does not require a complex inversion step to reconstruct the image of the subject. Suitable gaseous fuels, dopants, and sources are assessed for potential use in a fuel imaging system within an internal combustion engine.

Keywords: Fluorescence, Tomography, Fuel, Visualisation.
