This study presents a method to measure wall temperatures of a rotating flame holder, which could be used as a combustion control device. Laser-induced phosphorescence is found to be a reliable technique to gather such experimental data. The paper first investigates how the coating (thickness, emissivity and lifetime) influence the flame stabilization. While the low thermal conductivity of the coating is estimated to induce a temperature difference of only 0.08–0.4 K, the emissivity increases… Expand
