A novel heat flux sensor was tested which allows for time-resolved heat flux measurements in internal ribbed channels related to the study of passages in gas turbine blades. The working principle of the Atomic Layer Thermopile (ALTP) sensor is based on a thermoelectric field created by a temperature gradient over an YBCO crystal (the transverse Seebeck effect). The sensors very fast frequency response allows for highly time-resolved heat flux measurements up to the 1 MHz range. This paper explains the design and working principle of the sensor, as well as the benchmarking of the sensor for several flow conditions. For internal cooling passages, this novel sensor allows for highly accurate, time-resolved measurements of heat transfer coefficients, leading to a greater understanding of the influence of fluctuations in temperature fields.
