Abstract

A numerical technique is reported here that simulates the image formation processes in a laser droplet-slicing imaging experiment for droplet thermometry. The distorted images of the central plane of a transparent droplet, covered by its front hemisphere, can be numerically simulated, and the images can be partially restored. An off-90° observation arrangement is proposed for such experiments.
