A liquid thermistor

E. L. Cussler

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A liquid thermistor consisting of a salt‐triethylamine‐water solution shows a resistance increase of 100% per degree centigrade over a range of 8°C. Outside this specific temperature range, the resistance changes slowly. The altered resistance results from the phase change at the critical solution temperature. While devices of this type can show major hysteresis and are restricted to specific temperatures, their response is faster than a millisecond.
