Sensitive temperature-induced line shifts of the near-band-edge emission from ZnO : Ga and ZnO : Zn are investigated for two-dimensional (2D) thermometry with nanosecond time resolution. Spectral and temporal concerns for 2D measurements and the feasibility for utilizing the line shifts for temperature measurements using a spectral ratio are investigated. Owing to the high temperature sensitivity, a precision of 1% at 800 K is reported for spectral ratio measurements. The technique is demonstrated by 2D measurements of the liquid temperature of burning methanol droplets.
