Abstract : Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) spectroscopy was used to probe the nitramine LOVA flame, burning unconfined in the air. Several spectral regions were scanned in an attempt to document the transient species of the RDX combustion for use in determining decomposition mechanisms.
