The stabilization of lifted jet diffusion flames has long been a topic of interest to combustion researchers. The flame and flow morphology, the role of partial premixing, and the effects of large scale structures on the flame can be visualized through advanced optical imaging techniques. Many of the current explanations for flame stabilization can benefit from the flow and flame information provided by laser diagnostics. Additionally, the images acquired from laser diagnostic experiments reveal features invisible to the eye and line-of-sight techniques, thereby allowing a deeper insight into flame stabilization. This paper reports visualizations of flame and flow structures from Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Planar Laser-Induced Fluorescence (PLIF) and Rayleigh scattering. The techniques are surveyed and the success of visualization techniques in clarifying and furthering the understanding of lifted-jet flame stabilization is discussed.
