Abstract

A tunable diode laser was used for absorption tomography in an axisymmetric atmospheric pressure flat-flame burner. A rapid tomographic inversion algorithm was used to facilitate the many reconstructions at a relatively sparse set of projections typical of laser absorption tomography. Profiles of temperature and CO2 mole fraction were measured simultaneously in methane–air flames. Absorption measurements were made near the R-branch bandhead at 4.17 μm to minimize interferences with other species, while providing good temperature and concentration sensitivity at flame conditions. The procedure showed the advantage of reconstructing detailed spectra at each radial node.
