2018–2021 Mesoscopic sensors for temperature measurement
There is a growing need to make temperature measurements at smaller scales. However, currently available thermometers cannot meet this challenge.
Project develops optomechanical sensors for temperature measurement at nano- and microscale. The ultimate goal is to develop a reliable quantum standard for temperature metrology.
WP1: Design, fabrication and material optimization of photonic and quantum optomechanical devices
WP2: Investigation of device materials for functional optimization
WP3: Photonic and optomechanical read-out techniques
WP4: Metrological validation of photonic and optomechanical thermometers
VTT MIKES builds, characterises and validates a setup for temperature measurements using photonic sensors and develops calibration procedures.
