Abstract
This paper describes the CO concentration and gas temperature distribution measurements behind a strong shock wave in the simulated Martian atmosphere by an optical diagnostic system. The strong shock wave (6.31 ± 0.11 km/s) is established in a shock tube driven by combustion of hydrogen and oxygen. The optical diagnostic system consists of two parts: the optical emission spectroscopy (OES) system and the tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) system. For OES system, high temporal and spatial resolution experimental spectra of CN violet system (B2Σ+→X2Σ+, v = 0 sequence) have been observed. Rotational and vibrational temperature distribution along the shock wave is inferred through a precise analysis of high-resolution experimental spectra. For TDLAS system, a CO absorption line near 2335.778 nm is utilized for detecting the CO concentration using scanned-wavelength direct absorption mode. Combined with these experimental results using OES, CO concentration in the thermal equilibrium region is derived. The detected average CO concentration is 7.46 × 1012 cm-3 with the average temperature of 7400 K ± 300 K, which corresponds to the center fractional absorption of 2.7%.
