We review the Raman thermography technique, which has been developed to determine the temperature in and around the active area of semiconductor devices with submicron spatial and nanosecond temporal resolution. This is critical for the qualification of device technology, including for accelerated lifetime reliability testing and device design optimization. Its practical use is illustrated for GaN and GaAs-based high electron mobility transistors and opto-electronic devices. We also discuss how Raman thermo
