A method and apparatus for measuring the temperature profile of a surface exhibiting spatial and/or temporal variations in temperature, e.g., the surface of a machine or a biological system, is disclosed. The inventive method involves forming a layer of chemiluminescent material in thermal contact with the surface. The chemiluminescent activity is selected to be a function of temperature by suitable dye choices. The resulting luminescence is detected.
