An Intensity-based and a lifetime-based PSP imaging method with enhanced sensitivity
Keywords:PSP, TSP, intensity, lifetime
A pressure-/temperature-sensitive paint (PSP/TSP) has been developed and used as a measurement tool for the two-dimensional distribution of pressure and temperature on aerodynamic surfaces. In recent years, although the concern with measuring a pressure difference of several Pa, such as countermeasures against the noise of small fans, has been growing, the resolution of current PSP measurements is limited to several 10 Pa, even with carefully conducted measurements. For highly accurate measurements, researches on the advanced coating films in PSP/TSP have eagerly been conducted to date. However, measurement resolution and accuracy deteriorate when quantum efficiency or lifetime decrease under high pressure or high temperature conditions.
