High Temperature, Optical Sapphire Pressure Sensors for Hypersonic Vehicles-FSU

The study of hypersonic boundary layers is critical to the efficient design of hypersonic vehicles for rapid global and space access. The harsh environment makes conventional instrumentation unsuitable for time accurate, continuous, direct measurements. The development of a high temperature sensor for direct measurement of pressure is vital to the understanding of shock-wave/boundary layer interactions which directly influence critical vehicle characteristics such as lift, drag, and propulsion efficiency.
