Scanning probe thermometry research. IBM researcher Bernd Gotsmann with the scanning probe thermometer invented by him and his research team. This breakthrough technique enables the accurate measurement of the temperature of nano and macro size objects. This has applications in characterising the temperature of new transistor designs. It was developed by scientists in Switzerland from IBM and ETH Zurich. The results (with a patent pending) were published in 2016, in the journal 'Nature Communications'.
