Rotational CARS (Coherent anti-Stokes Raman Spectroscopy) was used to measure temperature and relative oxygen concentrations in the exhaust gas of a catalytic combustor. This laser technique has the general advantages of such techniques, i.e. possibility of performing in-situ measurements with high spatial and temporal resolution, and non-intrusiveness. Profiles of temperature and oxygen concentrations are presented for a full-load condition, and the measured temperatures are compared with calculated values. Of great importance for the results is the accuracy of the technique, and a sensitivity analysis is performed to test the temperature and oxygen concentration dependence on uncertainties in experimental parameters. It was shown that the accuracy of temperature and oxygen concentration could be improved by fitting the nonresonant susceptibility in the evaluation procedure. The measurements were performed as a project in the European gas turbine program AGATA with the aim to develop a catalytic combustor with ceramic structural components and producing low emissions of pollutants.
