Abstract

A full vibrational–rotational level rate equation model has been used to investigate the application of laser-induced fluorescence techniques to number density measurements of hydroxide in a combustion environment. The extent of deviation of the population in the laser-pumped vibrational and rotational levels from the-two-level model prediction, due to collisional exchange mechanisms, was investigated for a range of pressures, temperatures, laser powers, and collisional exchange rates.
