CHAPTER 4

RAMAN SPECTROSCOPIC MEASUREMENTS OF TUBULAR FLAMES

Robert W. Pitz

4.1 INTRODUCTION

Although the Raman scattering effect was first discovered by C. V. Raman and K. S. Krishnan in 1928,1 it was not applied to flame measurement until the advent of lasers in the 1970s. The first spontaneous Raman scattering measurements in flames were made using a CW argon-ion laser to measure the vibrational Raman scattering spectra of H2O, N2 and O2 in flames where the flame temperature was interpreted from spectral fits.2 Since that time, Raman scattering has been widely used to measure major species concentrations and temperatures in both laminar and turbulent flames. There are excellent reviews of Raman scattering theory and measurement in flames. ...
