A new technique based on phosphor thermometry for measurements of two-dimensional gas-phase temperature, was examined as a new laser diagnostic. Calibration of Dy:YAG phosphor was carried out on the surface of a solid. The data were applicable for gas thermometry since the validation of the line intensity ratios method, showed good agreement with both the lifetime method and thermocouple data in a steady gas flow. Single-shot phosphor thermometry was examined in turbulent combustion in an engine. A reasonable temperature deviation and agreement with calculated data to within 5% precision was achieved in the ignition process of a compression ignition engine. Influencing factors such as chemical luminescence and intrusion into the combustion have also been discussed.
