AbstractThis study describes a technique that utilizes a single, tunable, pulsed dye laser and two intensified CCD cameras to image NH and NO simultaneously in turbulent ammonia-hydrogen-nitrogen jet flames. The NO radical is excited at 236.214 nm in its (0,1) band, while NH is excited in its A3Π-X3Σ–(1,0) band using the residual energy of the beam at 303.545 nm, necessary to yield 236.214 nm via mixing with the fundamental of the pump laser at 1064 nm. Data show that it is possible to image the instantaneous structure of these turbulent flames, specifically, NH delineates the reaction zone while NO also marks the location of burnt products.
