Microscale Thermoelectric Probes
The accurate measurement of energy transfer is essentialto allowing a better insight into the properties of organic and inorganic materials. For instance, the temperature response of a biological cell canconvey critical information on its bio-chemical composition, so allowing discrimination between healthy and malignant cells.
This project aims to create arrays of micron-scale temperature probes by exploiting the thermoelectric effect, whereby a voltageis generated between hot and cold junctions of two dissimilar metals. This will allow the investigation of materials at small scales.
