Abstract Thermocouples mounted on copper window screen were designed for the measurement of the skin surface temperatures of human subjects. In environments ranging from 29 ° to 43 °C. the average deviation of a series of thermocouple readings from a simultaneous series of radiometer readings was −0.1 °C. in the coolest environment and only +0.6 °C. in the hottest. The assemblies were easily constructed; they always remained firmly in place and were quite sturdy.
