Abstract

The argon arc plasma whose central temperature, 1.90×104K, is used as a practical example for an experiment to research the applicability of moiré deflection tomography in arc plasma flow-field diagnosis. The experimental result indicates that moiré deflection of the measured argon arc plasma is very small, even smaller than that of a common flame with the maximal temperature of nearly 1.80×103K. The refractive-index gradient in moiré deflection tomography mainly contributes to the temperature gradient in essence when the probe wavelength and pressure are certain in plasma diagnosis. The applicable temperature ranges of moiré deflection tomography in the argon arc plasma diagnosis are given with the probe wavelength 532nm at 1atm in certain measuring error requirements. In a word, the applicable temperature range of moiré deflection tomography for arc plasma diagnosis is intimately related to the probe wavelength and the practical measuring requirements.
