Impact of Varying Vacuum Levels on Self-Heating in Photonic Thermometers



Zeeshan Ahmed, Nikolai N. Klimov, James R. Hands, James A. Fedchak


Here we examine the impact of vacuum levels on self-heating in photonic crystal cavity thermometers. Our results suggest that background gas pressure has a negligible impact on self- heating correction to the temperature-wavelength calibration.
