The problem of measuring high frequency variations in temperature is described, and the need for some form of reconstruction introduced. One method of reconstructing temperature measurements is to use the signals from two thermocouples of differing diameter. Two existing methods for processing such measurements and reconstructing the higher frequency components are described. These are compared to a novel reconstruction algorithm based on a nonlinear extended Kalman filter. The performance of this filter is found to compare favorably, in a number of ways, with the existing techniques, and it is suggested that such a technique would be viable for the online reconstruction of temperatures in real time.
