Abstract

Time-resolved fluorescence measurements are reported for the OH radical in the flame fronts of laminar atmospheric pressure flames. Effective (collision-limited) lifetimes were determined following excitation of theA2Σ+,υ′ = 0 state of OH using a picosecond dye-laser system based on the distributed-feedback principle. Measurements were made in a premixed knife-edge burner for rich CH4/N2O/N2 and CH4/air flames and in a counterflow diffusion burner for a CH4/air flame. In the accessible range, results indicate a net dependence of lifetime on temperature intermediate betweenT andT0.5 for these flames.
