Thermometry at the Nanoscale

Termometry at the Nanoscale

Techniques and Selected Applications

Edited by Luis Dias Carlos and Fernando Palacio

Recent advances in technologies have created a need for sensing and measuring temperature at the nanoscale. This challenge requires new approaches and new techniques, since conventional thermometry is not valid at this scale. Thermometry at the Nanoscale covers the fundamentals of the subject, followed by individual chapters on luminescence- based and non-luminescence based thermometry techniques, and finally specific chapters on different applications of nanothermometry.
