Abstract

We report on a novel nonlinear laser spectroscopic technique for single-shot imaging of ground-state hydrogen atoms in harsh environments. H atoms from the ground state were first pumped to the 2 s state via a two-photon excitation with a 243 nm laser beam, and the population of the 2 s state was further probed through the 2 s 4 p transition with conventional polarization spectroscopy at 486 nm . A single Nd : YAG -pumped optical parametric oscillator laser system was enough to provide both laser beams. Single-shot visualization of native H atoms in an atmospheric pressure premixed H 2 O 2 flame is demonstrated.
