Water vapour (H2O) multiplexed tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) was utilized to obtain spatially-resolved temperature information inside a low pressure premixed flame reactor. The temperature distribution was obtained by assuming the temperature to be constant in variable lengths along the line-of-sight (LOS temperature bins). The length fraction of postulated temperature bins along the LOS was determined. Multi-line NO laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) imaging technique was used to validate the spatial temperature distributions deduced from H2O TDLAS. By moving the burner head perpendicularly to the observation zone, three-dimensional (3-D) temperature fields were obtained.
