Formatted Abstract/Summary
Vacuum Ultraviolet (VUV) emission spectroscopy radiation measurements were conducted for Titan and Mars atmospheric entry conditions using the Centre for Hypersonics X2 expansion tube. The VUV measurements were taken while viewing downstream through the shock layer of a scaled model. UV-Visible emission spectroscopy measurements were conducted in parallel, viewing the shock layer through a side window. The spectra was dominated by the CN violet molecular bands and the main atomic lines identified were C, N and Al. For a Titan 8.5km/s condition, sample of the calibrated spectra for the VUV is presented and discussed, alongside uncalibrated continues spectra from the VUV through to the UV-Visable.
