The present paper presents applications and feasibility studies of a number of laserspectroscopic techniques in a lean premixed prevaporised (LPP) combustor. Four different laser diagnostic techniques were investigated. The two more mature techniques, Planar Mie Scattering/Laser Induced Fluorescence and Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence of OH were used for fuel- and OH-visualisation, respectively. In addition, the applicability of some novel techniques in harsh industrial environments were investigated, two-line atomic fluorescence (TLAF) to obtain 2-dimensional temperature distributions, and two-photon LIF for the detection of CO. In order to investigate the degree of turbulence an ultrafast framing camera was employed to record spontaneous emission.
