Conference paper


A new method is described for the simultaneous detection of the two-dimensional (2D) temperature and the 2D OH concentration distributions in a high turbulent premixed flame inside a contained combustion chamber. The temperature information is obtained by Rayleigh scattering and the OH concentration from laser-induced predissociated fluorescence (LIFE). A newly designed detection optics for the separation of the synchronously induced Rayleigh and fluorescence signals allows the use of only one single laser source in combination with only one single 2D detector.
