Abstract:

Many problems involving the prediction of radiance from heated gases or plasmas containing metals and their oxides are limited in the reliability of their solution because relevant spectroscopic properties of the radiating species are not known. Despite significant recent advances in calculational procedures, many cases still require experimentally based data for reliable inputs to radiance predictions. This is especially true in the infrared spectral range. The purpose of these studies was to provide quantitative spectrometric measurements for metal oxide species in the IR. They are intended to provide a broad data based upon which radiative models may be built for reliable predictions of radiation for a chemical system containing uranium and or aluminum and oxygen under a variety of environmental conditions.
