This paper reports a novel patternable temperature sensitive paint (PTSP) which can be photolithographically patterned. The proposed PTSP consists of europium (III) thenoyltrifluoroacetone (Eu(TTA)3) as a luminescent material and SU-8 as a photosensitive matrix. The optimal patterning condition was investigated and the PTSP microstructures as small as 2 μm were successfully patterned. The luminescence from the micro-patterned PTSP was observed and the temperature sensitivity was measured as high as -0.8%/°C.
