Abstract : This report is an overview of the current state of temperature- and pressure-sensitive luminescent paint techniques. Topics include photophysical foundations, paint preparation and calibration, measurement systems, accuracy, and time response. Applications of the luminescent paint technique in aerodynamic testing are discussed and results of measurements of a transonic rotor are presented.
