Nowadays, sapphire resonator thermometer is a novel field starts from 2007 at NIST [1] and lots of work were done then by Strouse [1] and Yu et al. [2], [3] based on spherical and cylindrical sapphire. In order to make the thermometer more and more compact, sapphire rod was studied. Investigations on potential perturbations were firstly studied before the(More)
This paper presents a state-of-the-art whispering gallery mode (WGM) thermometer system, which could replace platinum resistance thermometers currently used in many industrial applications, thus overcoming some of their well-known limitations and their potential for providing lower measurement uncertainty. The temperature-sensing element is a(More)
A sapphire rod resonator was presented here and the dimension optimization for the cavity was implemented based on the sapphire rod which is 6 mm in diameter and 30 mm in length. For a resonator the Q factor, coupling strength, energy portion on the sapphire were the most important factors. This paper will mainly focus on the analysis of these three(More)
