Thermometers Current Affairs, GK & News
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 ..
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 ..
