Temperature is defined as the energy level of matter which can be evidenced by some change in that matter. Temperature measuring sensors come in a wide variety and have one thing in common: they all measure temperature by sensing some change in a physical characteristic.

The seven basic types of temperature measuring sensors discussed here are thermocouples, resistive temperature devices (RTDs, thermistors), infrared radiators, bimetallic devices, liquid expansion devices, molecular change-of-state and silicon diodes.
