Abstract:

We developed a micro-thermocouple probe in order to measure the thermal responses of a cell. A micropipette with a tip 1 micrometer in diameter was used for the base of the probe. A PtAu junction was constructed on the tip. The average thermoelectric power of the probe was 2.1 mu VK. The temperature and time resolutions of the probe were investigated by using a laser beam to irradiate the tip.
