Fig. 3

This figure shows temperature plots for an experiment with a pressure setting of 10 mmHg (three curves on the top) and with 100 mmHg (three bottom curves) for three thermometer probes at 3, 5 and 10 mm distance. For 10 mmHg, a rapid heat build-up is observed within the first 10 s. After the heat build-up, the temperature curves fluctuate around the average temperature. For 10 mmHg, the temperature fluctuations are more rapid and have smaller amplitudes than for 100 mmHg
