Rise of the 3rd dimension in nanotemperature mapping

Project description

3D temperature mapping critical to understanding the nanoworld

Nanometre-scale devices capable of measuring temperature variations at a molecular level are valuable in both fundamental and applied science. For example, they can quickly measure micromachine overheating or the temperature inside of a cell. Although they hold tremendous promise for many applications, their 2D resolution has been a limiting factor against their more widespread use. The EU-funded ThermoRise project will provide a route against this barrier by developing local nanoprobes with tailored magnetic properties that will record critical information about local temperature in 3D. In particular, the nanoprobes will record the most relevant temperature information instead of reading the present temperature value. The project's achievements will widen the range of applications of nanothermometers, allowing temperature measurement in confined environments and in non-transparent media.
