Abstract

The influence of femtosecond laser-induced plasma (FLIP) on the stability of a premixed CH4/O2/N2 flame is investigated at atmospheric pressure. The laser energy, laser repetition rate, the equivalence ratios, and the volume percentage of oxygen in O2/N2 blends are varied. Our findings indicate that the flame blow-off velocity is a function of these parameters. It has been experimentally found that the flame blow-off velocity increases by a factor of two with FLIP than without FLIP. A high-repetition-rate and a great energy laser-induced plasma flameholding, as a non-intrusive optical flameholding, may be a feasible alternative for any combustor.
