The use of thermistors started when the scientists discovered that metals have a semiconductor property. The inventor of the first operating thermistor is Samuel Ruben. Thermistors are resistors which could vary their resistance with the change of temperature. The industry of thermistor rapidly increases due to its reliability and low price. Then, its uses became wider as more and more devices are installed by the thermistors. As the technology progresses, the use of thermistors in any devices and instruments also developed (Ametherm, np).
In 1833, Michael Faraday discovered that silver sulfide (Ag2S) has a semiconductor property. He observed it using the ...
