The laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) technique has during the last decade been developed to a very Important tool for diagnostics of different combustion processes. Furthermore, the advantages of having been developed to yield multipoint Information as well as for measuring species absorbing in the VUV spectral region through multi-photon processes have increased the applicability even more. One drawback with the technique, however, has been the limitation to single-species , detection. Except for simultaneous detection of NO2 and NO through one- and two-photon processes, respectively,1 and multiple radical detection through spectral coincidences and collision-induced energy transfer processes,2 very few multiple-species LIF experiments have been reported on a single-shot (~10-ns) time scale.
