Optical Fiber Thermal Property Probe
WARF: P170028US02

Inventors: Mark Anderson, Matthew Weathered

The Invention
An optical fiber sensor extends coaxially with a controllable heater to provide high-resolution axial measurement of thermal properties such as thermal convection of the surrounding, Heat removal by either conduction or convection may be used to deduce material height in a tank, or velocity of flow when coupled with localized heating, or other aspects of the material based on thermal conductivity.
