Journal Article
Yáñez-González, Á., Ruiz-Trejo, E., van Wachem, B., Skinner, S., Beyrau, F., & Heyes, A. (2016). Development of an optical thermal history coating sensor based on the oxidation of a divalent rare earth ion phosphor. Measurement Science and Technology, 27(11), https://doi.org/10.1088/0957-0233/27/11/115103

The measurement of temperatures in gas turbines, boilers, heat exchangers and other components exposed to hot gases is essential to design energy efficient systems and improve maintenance procedures. When on-line measurements, such as those performed... Read More about Development of an optical thermal history coating sensor based on the oxidation of a divalent rare earth ion phosphor.

Thermographic laser Doppler velocimetry (2015)
Journal Article
Ojo, A. O., Fond, B., Van Wachem, B. G. M., Heyes, A. L., & Beyrau, F. (2015). Thermographic laser Doppler velocimetry. Optics letters, 40(20), 4759-4762. https://doi.org/10.1364/ol.40.004759

We propose a point measurement technique for simultaneous gas temperature and velocity measurement based on thermographic phosphor particles dispersed in the fluid. The flow velocity is determined from the frequency of light scattered by BaMgAl10O17:... Read More about Thermographic laser Doppler velocimetry.
