The report gives results of the application of a pulsed ruby laser holographic interferometer to the study of flames, in hopes of extracting termperature profile data. The principle involved is to record holographically the interferogram which presents a three-dimensional record of the interference fringe pattern. The density profile and hence the temperature profile can be calculated from the fringe shift information. The report presents data for a methane-air burner operating both as a diffusion flame and as a premixed flame. The large number of fringe shifts recorded on an interferogram complicated the reduction of the methane-air data, but it was possible to correlate the interferometrically derived temperature data with thermocouple measurements. Application of the technique to a 0.2 gal/hr oil burner was unsuccessful because the highly turbulent flame caused an interference pattern that could not be deciphered. (Modified author abstract)
