Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a new method of evaluating temperature distribution in electrical discharges: the method makes use of an Fabry-Perot optical fiber interferometer. The all- dielectric nature of optical fiber sensors, together with their immunity to electromagnetic interference, makes them ideally suited for the study of electrical discharges. As opposed to point-probe techniques, our method uses an integrating approach which takes advantage of the axial symmetry which is usually associated with practical discharge arrangements. Experimental results obtained in an Argon glow discharge are presented.
