A miniaturized design of a fibre-optic based total temperature probe is presented which is intended to be used for aircraft engine testing. The FBG-based probes were experimentally characterized in the harsh environment of an open jet test bench at air stream velocities up to Mach numbers of 0.8 and they showed similar performance as conventional sensing techniques. The reduction of the size of the transducer was possible by using small sized FBG-based temperature sensors. Due to the smaller probe design and thinner signal transmission cables, less distortion of the air stream is expected with the fibre-optic sensor, when compared to conventional instrumentation. This allows a higher density of instrumented sensors and thus a higher spatial resolution of the measurement. This is, to our knowledge, the first demonstration of total temperature measurements at high air stream velocities with FBG-based transducers.
