Abstract

Quantitative, kiloherz-rate measurement of carbon monoxide mole fractions by femtosecond two-photon, laser-induced fluorescence (TP-LIF) was demonstrated in high-pressure, luminous flames over a range of fuel-air ratios. Femtosecond excitation at 230.1 nm was used to pump CO two-photon rovibrational X1Σ+B1Σ+ transitions in the Hopfield–Birge system and avoid photolytic interferences with excitation irradiance 1.7×1010  W/cm2. The effects of excitation wavelength, detection scheme, and potential sources of de-excitation were also assessed to optimize the signal-to-background and signal-to-noise ratios and achieve excellent agreement with theoretically predicted CO mole fractions at low and high pressure.
