Black body radiation from a fibre ofβ SiC can be used to investigate the temperature profile in a premixed flame. An infrared scanner determines the radiation intensity of the fibre, which is related to the fibre temperature by a calibration law. A fast time constant and excellent spatial resolution of the fibre make the method a very helpful tool to study the turbulent flames.
