This lecture gives an overview of methods which are currently in use for measurements of temperature from luminescence of lanthanide doped materials.1 Methods are classified to time-integrated and time-resolved ones depending on the temporal nature of luminescence measurements. The former methods include methods based on temperature reading from intensity of emission, ratio of emission intensities, changes of excitation and emission band positions and linewidths with temperature. The later include methods based on measurements of emission decay- and rise-times. Advantages/disadvantages between time-integrated and time-resolved temperature read-outs are highlighted, and the generic luminescence thermometry system is presented with a description of its basic components. Examples of temperature read-out schemes are given for each method of temperature reading, for low-, room- and high-temperature measurements. Examples include results obtained with: Dy3+ doped GdVO4 thin films,2 Yb3+/Er3+ doped GdVO4 nanoparticles,3 Eu3+ and Sm3+ doped TiO2 nanoparticles,4,5 Eu3+ doped SrY2O4,6 and Yb3+/Er3+, Yb3+/Ho3+ and Yb3+/Tm3+doped Y2O3.
