The California Institute of Technology's Combustion Acoustics Facility is used to measure the changes in the creation of NO in a partially premixed jet flame due to acoustic forcing at frequencies ranging from 22 to 55 Hz. The facility generates a quarter-wave mode so that the test flame is in a region where the acoustic velocity is nearly zero. This facility and a similar burner have been previously used to measure the phase-resolved response of the OH field. In this experiment, phase-resolved NO planar laserinduced fluorescence (PLIF) measurements are recorded. The location and phase coupling of the NO field are analyzed, and the production and transport of NO are compared with previously reported OH field measurements. The NO levels increase for frequencies that exhibit stronger acoustic coupling to the flame. The NO concentration field variations lead (in phase space) the OH field variations. This is probably a result of the greater NO sensitivity to temperature (which itself is closely coupled to the chamber pressure).
