Micro-Structured Sapphire Fiber Sensors for Simultaneous Measurements of High Temperature and Dynamic Gas Pressure in Harsh Environments

Performer: Missouri University of Science & Technology (Miner Circle)

Project No: FE0001127

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will develop advanced temperature measuring sensor devices for direct and simultaneous measurement of temperature and dynamic gas pressure in high temperature (up to 1600°C), high pressure, and chemically-harsh environments. The outcome of this technology will be advanced control of key operational parameters resulting in enhanced efficiency, reduced emissions, and improved reliability, availability, and maintainability of existing and next generation power and fuel systems.
