A tunable excimer laser at 248 nm (KrF) and 193 nm (ArF) has been used to monitor two-dimensional OH and NO distributions in the turbulent flame of a 100 kW natural gas burner. Spatially resolved fluorescence (spatial resolution better than 1.0 mm) from a 20 cm×20 cm area is collected under single shot conditions. We describe the problems encountered when laser-induced fluorescence imaging techniques are applied to large scale flames. Special experimental arrangements, imposed by the turbulent behavior of the flame we used, are also described.
