The response of thin sputtered thermocouples to interrupted radiation of low frequency has been studied and corroboration with the theory obtained. The anomalous behavior of bismuth-tellurium couples has been observed. These couples when used in conjunction with a low frequency amplifier are more sensitive than wire thermocouples used with the most sensitive galvanometers, but without "multipliers."
