bimetallic strip

A term commonly applied to a pair of metallic strips with different thermal expansion coefficients that have been bound together to form a single strip.

The purpose is to create a device that converts temperature into a mechanical signal either as a visible temperature reference or as part of a thermal control system (e.g., a thermostat).
