The results of experimental study of evolution of temperature fields under single vapor bubble obtained by high-speed infrared thermometry with high spatial resolution (13 μm) are presented in this paper. The data were obtained at pool boiling of saturated ethanol and deionized water at atmospheric pressure. Reconstruction of local instantaneous heat flux distribution on the heater surface was carried out with the use of numerical simulation. It is shown that maximal local heat flux was observed in the microlayer region on the bubble growth stage and reached the value an order of magnitude greater than the input heat flux. Based on the results of experimental and numerical researches the estimations of the microlayer thickness were carried out at pool boiling of water and ethanol, which are in good agreement with the experimental data presented in the literature and obtained using laser interferometry.
