Paper Abstract

Atmospheric pressure flames stabilized on research burners have been probed with cw ion lasers to measure detailed temperature and species concentration profiles. Using high-throughput collection optics and multichannel spectroscopic detection, Raman spectra are obtained and converted to profiles of major species and temperature. Due to coincidences of electronic transitions with laser wavelengths, the key radical species C2, CN, NCO, OH, and NH have also been profiled, using fluorescence spectroscopy. The experimental apparatus, observations, and analysis of typical data are discussed.
