Title: High-resolution Thermal Micro-imaging Using Europium Chelate Luminescent Coatings

Europium thenoyltrifluoroacentonate (EuTFC) has an optical luminescence line at 612 nm, whose activation efficiency decreases strongly with temperature. If a sample coated with a thin film of this material is micro-imaged, the 612 nm luminescent response intensity may be converted into a direct map of sample surface temperature.
