Cryogenic Thermometry — an Overview
The period from about 1965 to 1975 saw the very rapid commercial introduction of several innovative cryogenic thermometers. The driving force was the need for convenient, accurate temperature sensing for the burgeoning laboratory, electronics, space and commercial markets that were gaining momentum in that time period. This paper considers only commercially available temperature sensors. A more comprehensive review of the dozens of existing cryogenic temperature sensors and measurement techniques has been written by Rubin, Brandt and Sample covering work through 1981 .
