Application Limitations of RTDs: RTDs can be quite bulky, which can inhibit their use in heating can be a problem with RTDs. In order to measure the resistance of an RTD device, we must pass an electric current through it. Unfortunately, this results in the generation of heat at the resistance according to Joule’s Law.   Thin-film thermocouples are now being used in many environmentally troublesome applications. These sensors are formed by depositing thin film strips of thermocouple metals on various base materials. Their small size, low profile, and fast response time are ideal for a broad range of surface temperature measurements. Grounded thermocouples have a very good response time because the thermocouple is making direct contact with the sheath, allowing heat to transfer easily. A drawback of the grounded thermocouple is that the thermocouple is more susceptible to electrical interference.

The experiments were carried out with four jacket thin-film. Thin-film thermocouples are used in numerous applications [11][12] [13] [14]. They have a number of advantages over their conventional bulk material counterparts; they are small and scalable [ Lyons PRA, Gai SL () A method for the accurate determination of the thermal product (ρck) 1/2 for thin film heat transfer or surface thermocouples gauges.

Thermocouples are a versatile and cost-effective means of temperature measurement and offer the best protection against vibration. Wire-wound RTDs offer superior accuracy and a wider measurement range but are not as resilient. Thin film RTDs provide highly accurate and consistent data and offer greater resistance to vibration than wire-wound RTDs.

Temperature measurement can generally be divided into two main categories – contact thermometry and radiation thermometry.

Contact thermometry consists of a thermocouple which always remains in contact with the device under test, while radiation thermometry.
