Luminescence Sensing of Temperature in Oxides
The measurement of temperature based on the characteristic lifetime decay in luminescence intensity of dopant ions following excitation is described with illustrations drawn from europium doping in yttria-stabilized zirconia. The method is particularly attractive for making measurements in a temperature gradient, such as those in thermal barrier coatings.
