Abstract

Width-increased dual-pump enhanced coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (WIDECARS) has been developed for spatially and temporally resolved simultaneous measurement of temperature and mole fraction of most major species in ethylene–air flames. This paper describes a method to infer coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy complex susceptibility distributions of the ν3 band of ethylene from WIDECARS spectra measured in heated mixtures of ethylene and air, and to use such distributions to fit experimental WIDECARS spectra in an ethylene–air flame. The method is used to measure mole fraction ethylene in a dual-mode supersonic combustor burning premixed ethylene and air with single-laser-shot precision (one standard deviation) of ±0.0025 (absolute).
