Usual means for sensing temperature in a gaseous flow carrying suspended liquid droplets invariably yield the liquid temperature only. In this paper, we discuss a probe configuration which separates the liquid from the gaseous phase for water/gas mass ratios up to 1.2, and which provides for sensing the temperature of the gaseous phase by means of a miniature thermocouple. The overall system exhibits response rates on the order of 10 milliseconds for the water/gas environment in which the probe was evaluated.
