thermistor

 [ther-mis´tor]
a thermometer whose resistance varies with ambient temperature and so is able to measure extremely small temperature changes.

therm·is·tor

(therm'is-tŏr),
A device for determining temperature; also may be used to monitor control of temperature.
[G. thermē, heat]

thermistor

[thərmis′tər]
Etymology: Gk, thermē + L, resistere, to withstand
a kind of thermometer for measuring minute changes in temperature. The resistance of a thermistor varies with the ambient temperature, thereby enabling accurate measurements of small temperature changes. See also temperature, thermometer.

thermistor, (thur´mis´tər),

n an elec-tronic device, functioning as a thermometer, for measuring small changes in temperature. The resistance of a thermistor varies with the ambient temperature, thereby enabling accurate measurements of small temperature changes.
