CAREER: Thermal Gradient Microflow Calorimetry Using Anisotropic Temperature Sensors

Description :  

The researchers of this project seek to enhance the capabilities of thermopiles, devices used in radiation or temperature detection through voltage transduction in response to temperature or radiation changes. The objective of the researchers is to design and characterize a high-throughput microfluidic calorimeter capable of yielding a zero voltage background condition under non-isothermal conditions and a high degree of anisotropy sensing. This may be accomplished through the fabrication of novel miniature and microscale instruments, preparation and testing of samples with the calorimeter and the evaluation of data collected. The proposed calorimeter could enhance Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and the analysis of catalyzed biochemical reactions.
