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

Orbital commercial space vehicles require high-temperature sensors (~1000°C/1600°F) or various phases of flight (e.g, hypersonic flight, high speed reentry) or to monitor system and subsystem performance (e.g., for gas turbines or scramjets). Current commercial sensors are only capable of up to ~300°C/600°F.
