Abstract

A theoretical investigation has been made to determine quantitatively the effects of temperature gradients, self-absorption, and spectral line-shape on the apparent rotational temperatures of OH.

Emission experiments have been performed on the inner cone and on the outer cone of an oxygen-acetylene flame to determine the rotational temperature of the upper energy state of OH.
