The material in this paper is a subjective presentation of the topic of small temperature difference measurements. The basic thermal concepts, thermodynamic laws, and modes of heat transference pertaining to the subject was presented in the first two chapters, followed by a brief discussion of the phenomenon of radiation. Full presentation and discussion of the work done on the measurements and instrumentations of the radiation and a detailed description regarding the types of apparatus hitherto devised were then presented. As an application, the heating effect of radioactive emission was presented, and also a prospective method of the measurement of the heating effect of Beta ray emission was suggested. The theme ended with a brief conclusion and a corollary about the possibility of measuring and tracing the curves of the half life of many of the radioactive isotopes by the heating effect of the emission of each one by employing one of the radiometric instruments described.
