The Ragout-jet setup

How it began in 1998

ragout: rapid acquisition - giant outlet

Rapid acquisition - giant outlet; two key features of the pulsed nozzles which were synchronized with a rapid scan interferometer. Like in a ragout, the ragout-jet provided a mix of differently-shaped and sized chunks of matter in a fluid environment. Enlarged buffer volume and pumping capacity in 2001.
