From: Quantifying the effects of sensor coatings on body temperature measurements

Temperature sensor Coefficient of conductance (k s, min−1) \({\text{RMSE}}_{{k_{\text{s}} }}\) (°C)
Pre-correction Post-correction
Internal 0.81 ± 0.07 2.14 ± 0.2 0.52 ± 0.1
External 1.79 ± 0.06 0.38 ± 0.1 0.18 ± 0.1
  1. The mean (±SD) coefficients of conductance and the RMSE between the sensor temperature measurements (pre- and post-correction) and the ambient temperature during the heating and cooling curves of the calibration experiment
