A novel approach to probe temperature in living cells is reported in this week's Nature. The 'nanothermometer' is based on diamond nanocrystals and can accurately measure very small temperature variations at high spatial resolution. Potential applications include temperature-induced control of gene expression, and the cell-selective treatment of diseases. The nanoscale thermometry technique developed by Mikhail Lukin and co-workers uses quantum manipulation of nitrogen vacancy (NV) colour centres in diamond nanocrystals... via Health News from Medical News Today Read More Here..
