  author={Matthew D. Chambers and David R. Clarke},
  journal={Annual Review of Materials Research},
The measurement of high temperatures in oxides and oxide-based structures in practical applications often presents challenges including steep thermal gradients, the presence of flames or chemically aggressive environments, and the transparency or translucency of most oxides. For turbine engines, oxide coatings are of great commercial importance, and the rapid motion of parts prohibits contact thermometry. Luminescence thermometry offers a number of advantages for measuring temperature in such… 

Phosphor thermometry instrumentation for synchronized acquisition of luminescence lifetime decay and intensity on thermal barrier coatings

Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are used to protect turbine components from extreme environments and to allow for the turbine system to operate at temperatures beyond the melting point of the

Multimodal Non-Contact Luminescence Thermometry with Cr-Doped Oxides

It is shown that the thermally-induced processes of particle exchange, governing the dynamics of Cr3+ ion excited state populations, require low activation energy, which translates into tangible changes of a luminescence parameter with temperature and it is demonstrated that Ga2O3-Cr is a promising material for non-contact measurements at cryogenic temperatures.

Modeling luminescence behavior for phosphor thermometry applied to doped thermal barrier coating configurations.

It has been determined that YSZ:Dy provides the highest intensity of the collectible luminescence among the three dopant materials, and it has been shown that this position can be tailored by adjusting the geometrical configuration of the TBCs, varying the position and thickness of the doped layer.
