|Referee's report by Hugh Longbourne Callendar, on a paper 'The high temperature standards of the National Physical Laboratory. An account of a comparison of Platinum Thermometers and Thermo-junctions with the Gas-thermometer' by Dr John Allen Harker
|Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry
Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. Thinks it would be sufficient to print the table of reduction at the end for each ten degrees only throughout, instead of for every degree, especially below zero as the author has not made any tests at low temperatures. The plates should be considerably reduced and as many as possible printed in the text. The work appears to have been carefully executed and to reach as high an order of accuracy as can be expected with the constant volume gas-thermometer at high temperatures.
