Abstract : Thermocouples are fabricated by painting lines of two dissimilar thermal-element materials on a non-conducting substrate such that the painted lines intersect at the location where temperature is to be measured. Alternatively the paint may be thinned to the consistancy of ink and used in a printing process. Thermocouples may be thus formed on paper, cloth or plastic surfaces, for example. (Author)
