from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A device for measuring small electric currents, consisting of a Boys' s radiomicrometer and a fine wire or metallic strip placed near the lower junction of that instrument. The current to be measured heats the wire or strip, which in turn heats the thermojunction by radiation, thus producing a deflection of the radiomicrometer.
