Paper Abstract

Increasing levels of electromagnetic interference (EMI) coupled with the increasing use of composite materials on aircraft have created awareness and concern for susceptibility and weight of existing shielded electronics. Optical sensing techniques offer a solution due to their inherent immunity to EMI. Rosemount Inc.’s Aerospace Division has been developing an optical temperature sensor designed for aircraft and engine environments based on the fluorescent time rate of decay (TRD) principle.
