Abstract : The low temperature thermal expansion of l5 miscellaneous substances has been measured. Literature data for several other materials of possible interest have also been collected. The length changes between 300 K ana 0 K are reported in tabular form as an aid in the engineering design of cryogenic devices. References to the literature on low temperature expansion studies, covering the last 50 years, are given in an appendix.
