Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the particular use of phosphors and optical fibers called Fluoropticm Thermometry. The principles of operation and the particular characteristics which open new application areas to thermometry are reviewed. Several representative applications are discussed including: medical hyperthermia, high voltage electric power, industrial rf heating, nuclear magnetic resonance, and electronic fabrication such as sputtering, ion implantation and plasma etching. New extensions of the technology via improvements in fiber characteristics, and the next generation of multi-probe systems are also discussed.
