This paper represents the temperature effect on FinFET transistor and the possibility of using it as a temperature nano-sensor. The MuGFET simulation tool was used to investigate temperature characteristics of the FinFET. Current-voltage characteristics with different values of temperature were simulated. MOS diode connection suggested using the FinFET transistor as a temperature nano-sensor. The final results shows that the best FinFET used as a nanosensor is with GaAs because it has the
