Paper Abstract

Coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) is a nonintrusive laser diagnostic tech-nique for spatially- and temporally-precise measurements of temperature and species in practical combustion systems. Over the last several years, the development of CARS has progressed, at our laboratory and others, from simple flames of increasing complexity to practical application in internal combustion engines, gas turbine combustors, furnaces and a myriad of other real world devices. In this paper, the theory and application of CARS will be reviewed. Its practical applications will be surveyed with particular emphasis on our work in afterburning jet engine exhausts and development of a mobile CARS instrument for field applications.
