This paper describes recent advances in the development of a temperature measurement methodology based on phosphorescence of a tracer molecule in a liquid. The methodology represents an extension of molecular tagging velocimetry (MTV). MTV is a laser-based technique of obtaining spatially resolved fluid velocity profiles. The methodology has the potential of providing spatially resolved simultaneous measurements of velocity and temperature data over a planar domain. Presently, a method of obtaining temperatures over a range of 30°C with a typical uncertainty of ±1.0–1.5°C has been developed. Recent progress has resulted in a method of generating robust calibration curves for use in subsequent temperature measurements. A discussion of the experimental methodology, calibration curve development, and error analysis is presented. Finally, simultaneous temperature and velocity profile measurements using the method are demonstrated under dynamic conditions.
