Stephen and Greg Spend Summer at Boeing Seattle as part of NSF GOALI Research
Graduate Student Quentin Fouliard participated in ICPT18, the 1st International Conference on Phosphor Thermometry held in Glasgow, UK, on July 25-27, 2018. Quentin presented a conference paper titled “Configurations for Temperature Sensing of Thermal Barrier Coatings” in which initial results on an optimization method to select rare-earth phosphors based on their thermo-mechanical and optical properties were discussed. He took this great opportunity to exchange knowledge with experts on Phosphor Thermometry and to share with them his findings as well as collecting suggestions for future improvements on this research.
Quentin is currently working on a project that is funded by the US Department of Energy and deals with the implementation of advanced instrumentation techniques for accurate temperature and stress monitoring on Thermal Barrier Coatings.
