Investigates the performance of distributed anti-Stokes Raman thermometry time-correlated single-photon counting (DART TC-SPC) systems in high-temperature measurements. Two main problems found as the operating temperature is increased; Achievement of high spatial resolutions with the combination of Raman thermometry with the TC-SPC technique.
