The behavior of evaporating small diameter jets in a low-pressure environment is studied experimentally. Charged coupled device (CCD) cameras connected to a computerized data logging system are employed for high-speed imaging. Experiments at different jet velocities and environmental pressures have been performed with pure ether and ethanol, and also the mixtures of the two. Complex instability structures during the evaporation of the jet were observed. The recorded experimental evidences of these structures are presented and discussed.
