The scientists from which Institute has developed an ultrasensitive quantum thermometer, recently?

[A]. Jawaharlal Nehru University
[B]. University of Delhi
[C]. Jamia Millia Islamia
[D]. Jawaharlal Nehru University

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Researchers at Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, have developed an ultrasensitive quantum thermometer by using graphene quantum dots. It can precisely measure a wide range of temperature from 27 degree C to -196 degree C. It has high sensitivity in different temperatures and can measure every little (micro Kelvin) changes in temperature and has an extremely quick response time of just about 300 milliseconds. The team led by Saikh S. Islam, Director of the Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology developed the thermometer. The results of the study were published in the journal Nanoscale Advances.
