Abstract : We report here on work employing tunable diode laser absorption spectrosccpy to characterize premixed, low pressure flames inhibited with halons and halon alternative agents. This characterization is in the form of spatial temperature and species concentration profiles of the flames. We report here the observation of 11 combustion species, including short lived intermediates CF2O and CF3 radical.
