Abstract:

Low resolution experimental measurements of the Raman Stokes scattering cross-sections and band shapes of water vapor are presented as a function of temperature. The trace scattering theoretical band profiles are compared satisfactorily to the experimental results. The results indicate that low resolution Raman data of water vapor may be used to obtain temperature and specie density information in flames.
