The process of the atomization and formation of the fuel spray can be described by macro- and microstructure parameters. Knowledge of these parameters may be a key information to conduct further optimization of the combustion process. This paper presents the research results of the microstructure parameters of the diesel oil spray atomized with marine engine injector. A measurement technique, named Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) in the combination with Mie scattering was used to determine LIF/Mie ratio across the spray. The fuel was injected into a constant volume vessel. LIF and Mie signals were recorded by two cameras at the same time. Nd:YAG pulsed laser was used to create light sheet for spray illumination. Wavelength of λ = 266 nm was used in this study.
