Title: Generalized temperature measurement equations for rhodamine B dye solution and its application to microfluidics
Published: September 02, 2009
Abstract: Contact-less mapping of temperature distributions based on ratios of fluorescent signals is a ubiquitous temperature detection technique. However, application of calibration equations that relate fluorescence intensity ratios to temperature pose several practical challenges such as compensating for differences in reference temperature. In this report, we develop generalized calibration equations that can be applied for any value of reference temperature.
