Abstract
A fiber thermometer using the cross detection of the fluorescence decay and background radiation was presented to measure the temperature from room temperature to over 1600 °C. A YAG crystal fiber with a Tm doped tip was used as the sensing material. A phase-locked detection scheme was used for the fluorescence detection and background radiation compensation. The compensation current was also used for the background radiation detection. The fluorescence characteristics of the Tm doped YAG crystal fiber was analyzed in a temperature range from room temperature to over 1200 °C. The annealing effect on the probe material under high temperature was also investigated. The preliminary result showed that the system could achieve a resolution much better than 1 °C over the whole temperature range from room temperature to 1400 °C.
