A novel optical technique is developed for the measurement of turbulently fluctuating temperature is a transparent fluid flow. The turbulent sodium mixing in the ANL 1/15 -scale FFTF outlet plenum is investigated with a scale-model outlet mixing plenum, using flows of air. The electrical analogue and the power spectral density of the fluctuating temperature are observed experimentally at seven stations in the flow.
