Abstract

A new diode-laser-based UV-absorption sensor for high-speed detection of the hydroxyl radical (OH) is described. The sensor is based on sum-frequency generation of UV radiation at 313.5 nm by mixing the output of a 763-nm distributed-feedback diode laser with that of a 532-nm high-power, diode-pumped, frequency-doubled Nd:YVO4 laser in a beta-barium borate crystal. Approximately 25 µW of UV radiation is generated and used to probe rotational transitions in the A²Sigma+-X²Pi (v'=0, v"=0) electronic transition of OH. Single-sweep, single-pass measurements of temperature and OH concentration in a stoichiometric C2H4-air flame are demonstrated at rates up to 20 kHz.
