Future advanced combustors and power plants will require a large number of sensors that can provide detailed information for better monitoring and control of the various on-going processes within the system. Traditional sensors are large and expensive for providing comprehensive spatial, temporal, and volume information in a process. There are some inherent barriers to develop new micro- and nano-scale sensors. The use as well as the interpretation of data from a large array of micro- and nano-scale sensors in a power plant operation ...
