Abstract

High-resolution absorption measurements of CO2 were made in a heated static cell and in the combustion region above a flat-flame burner for the development of an in situ CO2 combustion diagnostic based on a distributed-feedback diode laser operating near 2.0 μm. Calculated absorption spectra of high-temperature H2O and CO2 were used to find candidate transitions for CO2 detection, and the R(50) transition at 1.997 μm (the ν1 + 2ν2 + ν3 band) was selected on the basis of its line strength and its isolation from interfering high-temperature water absorption. Measurements of spectroscopic parameters such as the line strength, the self-broadening coefficient, and the line position were made for the R(50) transition, and an improved value for the line strength is reported. The combustion-product populations of CO2 in the combustion region above a flat-flame burner were determined in situ to verify the measured spectroscopic parameters and to demonstrate the feasibility of the diode-laser sensor.
