A nonintrusive diagnostic system is described which permits simultaneous measurement of temperature, nitrogen number density, and oxygen number density in hostile combustion environments. This system is pumped by a 10‐Hz neodymium YAG laser, and signals are detected with an intensified photodiode array and dual photomultipliers. The system utilizes a folded BOXCARS beam arrangement, two probe dye lasers, dynamic range expansion, polarization rejection of nonresonant background, and multiplexing of the signal beams.
