Quantitative analysis of laser induced fluorescence signals of nitric oxide requires a thorough implementation of the effects of temperature, quenching, laser and detection properties on the measured signals. Over the past years, LIF properties of nitric oxide were studied for a range of conditions, from well-controlled burners to internal combustion engines. The knowledge gained from these studies has been compiled into a model and software tool that now allows the computation of LIF spectra/signals for given experimental conditions. We discuss the functionality of the model and present selected examples, including pressure-dependent LIF spectra for the range from 0.1 - 10 MPa.
