My question is related with the heated windshield employing the some type of heating elements. Very very thin metalic cables are in use between two glasses of windshield. I have searched but noting found about its material. Do you know any cable supplier provides/gives the below graph. I need a wire to use as a temperature sensor. The needed TCR coefficient temperature in °C is 0.0048-0.0050. Diameter can be between 0.02 – 0.03 mm. Would you have any suggestion to us about material / alloy?

You can get generic, thin film style heating elements ready to go from various suppliers. If you are replacing an existing windshield on a current aircraft you will need to source a proper, certified, windshield for that airframe which should have the wire already embedded in it.

It seems that at least some of the elements are made of NiChrome
