    Abstract

    In-depth temperature sensing in air plasma sprayed (APS) thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) has been achieved with europium (Eu) and dysprosium (Dy) doped yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) sensor coatings. The luminescence properties of YSZ:Eu and YSZ:Dy, including spectrum, intensity and lifetime, were evaluated and their temperature sensing performances were compared using a lifetime-based measurement system. Both sensor TBCs display excellent temperature sensitivity in high temperature environment (400-800 °C for YSZ:Eu, 500-900 °C for YSZ:Dy) with a topcoat thickness up to 300 m. It was found that the upper limit of temperature sensing was determined by the ratio between luminescence intensity and background thermal radiation (signal-background-ratio). YSZ:Dy showed higher luminescent intensity than YSZ:Eu at elevated temperatures, and therefore displayed better temperature sensing performance with an increased limit. The effect of topcoat thickness on the temperature sensing performance was also evaluated, showing that the attenuation factor of YSZ increased significantly with topcoat thickness.Interestingly, it was found that the topcoat attenuation factor gradually decreased as temperature increased, which improved the temperature sensing performance of sensor TBCs at elevated temperature. The findings in the temperature sensing of APS TBCs provide basis for the future development of on-line APS TBCs temperature
    monitoring technology.
