This paper focuses on a survey of experimental data related to radiation into CO$_2$ plasma flows, which are encountered during Mars and Venus entries. The review emphasizes on VUV and IR radiation, since recent experimental efforts has been devoted to these wavelength ranges. The main objective of the study is to identify the most attractive datasets for future cross-check comparisons with the results obtained during future test campaigns with ESTHER shock-tube. The survey accounts for the…
