We have just published a new vacuum pressure sensor that uses a thermoelectric device. It is based on a new principle that relates the influence of the amount of gas in a thermal contact which impacts on the voltage signal of the thermoelectric device. The idea came from my PhD student Braulio Beltrán-Pitarch and we developed it together. It is his first paper as corresponding author. Congratulations!!
We hope it could be of interest for any vacuum company. The paper can be seen here. If you cannot access it and would like a copy, feel free to ask us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
