The phase I technical objectives are to use existing lifetime based PSP technology and identify a combination of existing probes and a binder that will provide a temperature-insensitive PSP measurement. These will be accomplished by extending the current lifetime-based systems that employ two-gate detection and by adding a second probe and a third or fourth gate. The proposed system will be constructed using the PtTFPP probe, FIB binder, and 470-nm LED excitation that are commonly employed in lifetime systems. A second probe that is compatible with this system and effectively eliminates temperature sensitivity will be identified and incorporated into the system. The final product will include a paint formulation and a set of camera gates that provide a pressure measurement that is insensitive to temperature.
