Temperature Measurements

Some articles on temperature measurements, temperature, temperatures:

Diode - Applications - Temperature Measurements
... A diode can be used as a temperature measuring device, since the forward voltage drop across the diode depends on temperature, as in a silicon bandgap temperature sensor ... it might appear that the voltage has a positive temperature coefficient (at a constant current), but usually the variation of the reverse saturation current term is more significant than the ... Most diodes therefore have a negative temperature coefficient, typically −2 mV/˚C for silicon diodes at room temperature ...
Volcanism On Io - Composition
... the lava colour and brightness are a function of the temperature of polyatomic sulfur and the packing and bonding of its atoms ... In addition, temperature measurements of thermal emission at Loki Patera taken by Voyager 1's Infrared Interferometer Spectrometer and Radiometer (IRIS) instrument were consistent ... wavelengths that are indicative of higher temperatures ...

Famous quotes containing the word temperature:

    The siren south is well enough, but New York, at the beginning of March, is a hoyden we would not care to miss—a drafty wench, her temperature up and down, full of bold promises and dust in the eye.
