Paper Abstract

Measurement of temperature using optical methods has been successfully employed in industrial environments where conventional techniques become unreliable. The sensor shows sufficient sensitivity to thermal variations whilst being substantially insensitive to strain. The most promising rare-earth elements for further development have been identified.
