The MOSAIC Project is an interdisciplinary R&D project supported by the Special Coordination Funds of the Science and Technology Agency, Japanese Government. Specialists from four different fields (chemistry, optical measurement, image processing, and aero-thermodynamics) have been participating in this project to develop novel optical sensing technology using chemical molecules that enables us to visualize complex aero-thermodynamic flow field that was difficult to measure with conventional electric sensors. In this paper, the R&D activities of the MOSAIC Project Phase One Program conducted from Japanese Fiscal Year 1999 to 2001 are overviewed. From the outcome of this program, the prospect to the future molecular sensor technology development is discussed.
