Abstract : The patent relates to the measurement of temperature in an electromagnetic field by a thermocouple connected to a meter. The temperature to be measured is sensed and converted into a D.C. voltage by the thermocouple. This D.C. voltage causes the meter to indicate the temperature. To prevent error due to electromagnetically coupled energy heating the thermocouple and/or producing a high frequency current which is conducted to the meter circuit from interfering with the meter readings, a physically small thermocouple with semiconductor leads or a semiconductor thermocouple having semiconductor leads is provided.
