In this Letter, moiré and emission tomography are integrated to visualize and diagnose high-temperature flow fields, and a jet flame is chosen as a practical example for experiment. The refractive index and intensity distributions are simultaneously obtained by moiré and emission tomography, respectively. Based on the intensity distribution, the structure of the jet flame is well visualized, so that the spatial distribution of species composition can be considered in the temperature reconstruction process. Finally, the refractive index and intensity distributions are matched, and a partition model is adopted to reconstruct the temperature distribution of the jet flame.
