In this work, Scheimpflug lidar has been combined with the thermometric technique two-line atomic fluorescence, to carry out stand-off, spatially resolved temperature measurements. Indium atoms were seeded into a modified Perkin-Elmer-burner and two tunable single-mode diode lasers with their wavelengths tuned to 410.17 and 451.12 nm were used to excite the seeded atoms. The fluorescence signal was collected using both a line-scan detector and a two-dimensional intensified CCD camera. One-dimensional flame temperature profiles were measured at different heights above a porous-plug burner, located at a distance of 1.5 m from the lidar system. The technique was also used to demonstrate two-dimensional temperature measurements in the same flame. The accuracy of the measured temperature was found to be limited mainly by uncertainty in the spectral overlap between the laser emission and the indium atom absorption spectrum as well as uncertainty in laser power measurements. With the constraint that indium can be introduced into the measurement volume, it is anticipated that the developed measurement concept could constitute a valuable tool, allowing in situ spatially resolved thermometry in intractable industrial applications, sufferings from limited optical access, thus requiring remote single-optical-port sensing.
