Combustion diagnostics by means of 2D Laser Induced Fluorescence (2D-LIF) is applied to a diamond depositing oxyacetylene flame. The method and results of diamond growth are discussed, as well as the 2D-LIF technique. The distributions of atomic hydrogen, CN, and C2 in the flame are presented together with their relations to diamond growth.
