Paper Abstract

Optical fiber thermometers offer several advantages over refractive optics thermometers. Besides eliminating the need for a direct line of sight to the measured surface, it is of special value for use in high electric or magnetic fields, or in strong rf or microwave fields due to the electrically nonconducting nature of the optical fibers. At present, fluorescent fiber thermometer has been developed and used for temperature measurement as low as -200 degree(s)C, but its contact modality limits the application in surface temperature measurement of moving objects. A noncontact fluoride fiber thermometer for near room temperature measurement is presented in this paper.
