Studies from University of Waterloo Update Current Data on Condensed Matter (Temperature gradient sensor based on CNT composite)

July 1, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- New research on Condensed Matter is the subject of a report. According to news reporting from Waterloo, Canada, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "This work describes fabrication and investigation of thin film temperature gradient sensor based on the composite of carbon nano-tubes (CNT) and polymer adhesive."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Waterloo, "The dependences of the voltage, current and Seebeck coefficient of the sensor upon gradient of temperature were measured."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "It was observed that with increase of temperature gradient, the voltage and current of the sensor increase while the Seebeck coefficient decreases."
