Temperature sensors comprise a market of USD 5.13 billion (in 2016) and are used across a broad spectrum of human activities, such as in medicine, home appliances, meteorology, agriculture, industry, and military [1]. A significant growth in demand is expected in the near future for contactless temperature sensors, which are not only easy to use, but are less complex and more accurate than contact temperature sensors. For example, there is an immediate need for noncontact thermometry for moving objects or objects which are sensitive to contact, difficult to access, or in hazardous locations [2]. Thermometry based on changes in the optical properties of materials is considered a promising route to meet these needs. Besides the well-known pyrometers and radiation thermometers, of interest are novel optical thermometers based on near-field scanning optical microscopy, Raman scattering, optical interferometry, thermoreflectance, and luminescence spectroscopy. The largest attention among emerging optical methods is in the luminescence thermometry because of the ease of detection of luminescence signal in comparison to other methods, relatively fast response, and a good spatial resolution.
This contribution presents the state-of-the art applications of luminescence thermometry, giving a detailed explanation of luminescence spectroscopic schemes for the read-out of temperature [3]. Schemes are classified to as time-integrated and time-resolved ones depending on the temporal nature of the luminescence measurements. The former includes methods based on reading temperatures from the intensity of emission, the ratio of emission intensities, the changes of excitation and emission band positions and widths with temperature, and luminescence anisotropy (polarization). The later includes methods based on measurements of emission decay -times and rise -times. The contribution also presents a comparative analysis of the advantages/disadvantages between of time-integrated and time-resolved temperature read-outs. Examples of temperature read-out schemes are given for different types of materials including phosphors, quantum dots, organic dyes, and luminescent polymers.
