And I thought my Gateway PC got hot. Lab-on-a-chip can get hotter than surface of Venus “Engineers have created a miniature hotplate that can reach temperatures above 1100°C (2012°F), self-contained within a ”laboratory” no bigger than a child’s shoe. The micro-hotplates are only a few dozen microns across (roughly the width of a human hair), yet are capable of serving as substrates, heaters and conductors for thin-film experiments ranging from material analyses to the development of advanced sensors.”
