Abstract

We have investigated the utility of a Lau phase interferometer with circular gratings and a white-light source to measure the temperature and temperature profile of an axisymmetric flame. The temperature measured with a Lau phase interferometer is in good agreement with the temperature measured with a thermocouple and multilogger. Detailed theoretical analysis and experimental investigation are presented.
