Abstract

The past decade saw the emergence of new temperature sensors that have the potential to disrupt a century-old measurement infrastructure based on resistance thermometry. In this review we present an overview of emerging technologies that are either in the earliest stages of metrological assessment (e.g. fiber-optic thermometry) or in the earliest stages of commercial development (e.g. Johnson noise thermometry) and thus merit further consideration by the measurement community. For each emerging technology, we explain the working principle, highlight the best known performance, list advantages and drawbacks of the new temperature sensor and present possibilities for future developments.
