Cavity structure is used to increase the Interferometric Rayleigh scattering signal intensity. By using ZEMAX method, we simulate a special cavity mode comprising two spherical reflectors with different size, including the focal length and the diameter. The simulations suggest that the parallel beam can reflect repeatedly in the resonant cavity and concentrate on the focus. Besides, the reflection times and the ray width can reach about 50 and 2.1 cm after some feasible solutions.
Planar laser induced fluorescence (PLIF) has been a very important species analysis approach in combustion research, but is most often presented qualitatively. Therefore, another supplementary techniques are needed for quantitative PLIF measurement. In this paper, we propose a quantitative OH concentration measurement method using PLIF calibrated by cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS). The CRDS measurement is firstly applied to a methane-air atmospheric pressure flame on a McKenna burner and determine the OH absolute density. Then the PLIF signal is calibrated by the determined OH concentration on the same flame under the same condition. The calibrated PLIF setup is fixed, and another PLIF setup is added to form a two-line OHPLIF thermometry to measure the 2D temperature distribution. Finally, a quantitative OH-PLIF measurement method is provided for the turbulent premixed flame on a Bunsen burner based on this setup.
