Miniature Resistance Thermometers Based on Ge Films on GaAs

  • V. F. Mitin
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 43)


Several types of miniature resistance thermometers based on Ge films have been developed and fabricated. They can operate in the 0.5 to 300, 77 to 400 and 200 to 500 K temperature ranges. The behavior of cryogenic thermometers has been investigated at low temperatures (1.7, 4.2 and 77.4 K) and in magnetic fields up to 14 T.
