Nanothermometers feel the heat

Abstract:
Researchers in Japan have a made a nanothermometer by filling a carbon nanotube with liquid gallium. The new device works in air, unlike previous models, which only operated in vacuum. The thermometer, which is less than 150 nm in diameter, could find a use in a range of micro-environmental applications.
