Abstract

A compact and easily transportable coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy system for combustion and plasma diagnostics is described. The instrument is readily adaptable to a wide variety of test environments and experiments. The system is capable of withstanding high noise and vibration levels and is remotely operable to protect the operator and delicate components from high noise levels or hazardous environments. It is intended for single-pulse temperature and concentration measurements in practical combustion systems, such as gas turbines, diesel engines, and plasma process applications. The system is operational, and initial measurement demonstrations in a supersonic combusting flow are described.
