Abstract

Coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) has been used to obtain radial temperature profiles in an axisymmetric methane diffusion flame. Temperatures were obtained from analysis of background-free nitrogen Q- and O-branch spectra. The spectra were analyzed with a nonlinear least-squares CARS fitting program and compared to measurements from radiation- and conduction-corrected thermocouples. Excellent agreement was obtained in regions of relatively constant temperature, whereas improved CARS spatial resolution was required to obtain agreement near steep temperature gradients.
