A New Method for Temperature Measurement by the Nanometer Particles
The subsidence rate of nanometer particles in liquid is determined by their Brownian movement, liquid drag force and gravity. The paper utilized the relation between temperature and the Brownian movement that the Einstein’s Brownian motion equation reveals. One new method for temperature measurement is proposed which based on the subsidence rate of nanometer particles. The Einstein’s classical theory can connect with contemporary nanometer technology, it have new application.
