Abstract: Upconverting phosphors were synthesized through a wet chemical route and their temperature sensitive characteristics over the range of 300 K to 1450 K with excellent sensitivity were demonstrated. The results indicate that the upconverting phosphor thermometry approach is promising for remote and accurate monitoring of surface temperatures in high-temperature environments such as gas turbine engines.
