Abstract
In this paper we discuss the development of a tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy probe to simultaneously measure, in situ concentrations of 4 major species (CO, C2H2, CH4, and H2O) and the gas phase temperature in a pool fire. The difficulty in making these types of measurements is intrinsic to the environment itself. A large fire is composed of very hot (> 1000 K), turbulent gases and highly radiating and absorbing soot particles. Fiber optic cables are used to transport laser radiation into the fire via a water-cooled probe. This paper focuses on probe design issues, such as the optimization of open path, multipass optics for a turbulent, particulate- laden flow, and the application of high-frequency wavelength modulation spectroscopy to frequency-domain multiplexing of diode lasers.
