ANY regular reader of a journal devoted to physics, or to scientific instruments, or to chemistry or to industrial chemistry, will find several articles each year in which a thermostat or controlled-temperature bath is described. In the view of its author, each of these new designs is superior to any of the old ones, and in fact they usually incorporate improvements, and are usually particularly suited to the problem in hand. Given then this vast mass of literature, it is certain that an investigator confronted with the problem of building a thermostat system for himself will find it difficult to make a choice among the various systems unless he can have guidance from someone more experienced.
