A new technique has been developed that permits simultaneous two-dimensional mapping of two scalar components (e.g., species and temperature) in a turbulent reacting flow. The technique uses two optical multichannel analyzers, each of which detects light scattered by a different mechanism (e.g., Rayleigh and Raman) and thus provides different information. The technique has been applied to both premixed and nonpremixed flames, and results are reported for each. The simultaneous information obtained in these experiments should provide new data on the interaction of turbulence and combustion in these chemically reacting flows.
