The Naval Dockyard Mumbai has developed a low cost hand held temperature gun to enable preliminary screening of COVID-19 cases. Temperature Guns Temperature guns are also called non-contact thermometers. These are infrared thermometers that infers the temperature of an object from the thermal radiation emitted by it. It measures the quantum of infrared radiation emitted ..
Thermometers: GK, Current Affairs, Questions, Trivia and News
The researchers at Jamia Millia Islamia (New Delhi) have developed an ultrasensitive quantum thermometer using graphene quantum dots. The thermometer can precisely measure a wide range of temperature: 27 degree C to –196 degree C. It has high sensitivity when measuring different temperatures and can measure very minute (micro Kelvin) changes in temperature. It showed ..
