Abstract

CARS spectra of NH3 have been obtained from a commercial catalytic ammonia oxidation plant operating at ∼10 atmospheres (absolute) and 250°C. A purpose-designed ruggedized CARS spectrometer—incorporating a novel dye laser, remote control, and fiber optic signal transfer—is described. A new and simple technique for CARS concentration analysis using polarized beams gave a precision of 5.9% for NH3 from single-shot spectra under laboratory conditions. Unfortunately, severe beam steering problems were encountered in the full-scale plant; this prevented a quantitative analysis of the spectra obtained. The origins of this problem together with suggestions for overcoming or reducing its effect are given.
