Abstract

Single-shot thermometry with dual-broadband rotational coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy that employs amplified spontaneous emission from a broadband modeless dye laser has been examined. Evaluation of single-shot spectra of air, N 2 ,     and     O 2 showed an improved temperature precision at room temperature compared with the precision obtained with a conventional dye laser. A comparison was also made between the use of single-mode and multimode Nd:YAG lasers as sources for narrowband radiation, and in all cases the single-mode Nd:YAG laser resulted in higher precision. The experimental results are compared with theoretical predictions.
