Perspectives and Future Scopes

In all the electronic devices this liquid ciystal thermistor can be experimented. Performance-wise, chemical stability and operating range are the important improvisationmade. Further, this thermistor can be encapsulated in any desired shape, design to suit the specific device applications. The power consumption of the device is negligibly less, the weight of the device is also comparatively superior to the conventional thermistors.
