Abstract

An alternative to the saturation approach is proposed to avoid the quenching dependence of the fluorescence intensity. The method allows direct absolute measurement of the local number density from a single laser shot. A mean quenching cross section of 5 × 10−19 m2 is deduced from the experiments, and a OH concentration profile through the flame is given.
