The purpose of the research was to determine the value of certain parameters that would lead to the successful use of kryptonates as passive temperature sensors when heating times are on the order of 10 to the -8th power to 10 to the -9th power seconds. The nonlinear diffusion of gas in solids, which is the basis of the technique, is not well understood. Therefore, the approach employed was empirical in nature. This approach was intended to determine workable values of impregnation gas pressure, time, and temperature. Kryptonates were exposed to a high intensity sungun and an electron beam. Sungun data resulted in temperature measurements 4 to 8 percent too low, while electron beam data were as much as 30 percent too low, as compared with conventional temperature measurement methods.
