Abstract

A disadvantage of pure rotational coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) compared with vibrational CARS is the limited dynamic range for temperature measurements. Here an optical configuration is described that overcomes this limitation by the use of two different center-frequency dye lasers in a dual-broadband CARS approach. Its performance is demonstrated for simultaneous pure rotational CARS temperature and relative N2–O2 concentration measurements up to 1950 K at ambient pressure.
