Abstract

We present measurements demonstrating simultaneous determination of velocity and temperature using a variant of the Vibrationally Excited Nitric Oxide Monitoring (VENOM) technique that does not employ NO2. The variant is based on tagging by electronic excitation of NO in the A2Σ1/2+(v=0)X2Π1/2(v=0) band and subsequent formation of vibrationally excited NO(X2Π) by spontaneous emission and collisional quenching. Sequential planar laser-induced fluorescence imaging of the nascent NO(X2Π,v=1) was used to obtain spatially resolved average streamwise velocity and rotational/translational temperature. The temperature determination using this approach extends the applicability of the VENOM technique to low-density, high-speed flows, where slow thermalization of the tagged molecules represents a limiting factor.
