Highlighted is a novel hybrid optical design physical sensor technology for extreme environments temperature measurement that combines freespace (wireless) and fiber-optics (wired), single crystal and sintered Silicon Carbide (SiC) materials, and Black-Body radiation thermometry (pyrometry) with laser interferometry to provide robust extreme temperature measurement within a gas turbine. A first generation temperature sensor has been tested in an industrial rig. The temperature probe has survived extreme temperature reaching 1600 ºC and one month of rig operations.
