The application of a neural network approach to on-line nitrogen CARS thermometry was developed for a standard setup with PC-based data acquisition in a LABview environment. The method utilized is based on initial clustering of the training network. The main advantage of the neural network method is speed with the potential for on-line temperature extraction. Results of space-resolved temperature measurements are presented in the case of an industrial CH4-air burner operating at atmospheric pressure. The resulting temperatures were compared with values extracted from the data using conventional least-squares fitting. Copyright (C) 2000 John Wiley and Sons, Ltd.
