Role of quantum technologies in reshaping the future of temperature metrology

Abstract

Today's resistance thermometers can routinely measure temperatures with uncertainties of 10 mK to 100 mK over multiple decades of temperatures across almost all facets of modern life. As modern economy continues to evolve past the industrial age, so does the measurement infrastructure. In recent years there has been a considerable uptick in the development of novel temperature sensing technologies driven by advances in quantum information systems and nanophotonics. Quantum technologies in particular hold the promise of field-deployable primary thermometry whilst ultra-stable nanophotonic thermometers could displace resistance thermometers as commodity sensors.
