[ noun ] (physics) a kind of thermometer consisting of two wires of different metals that are joined at both ends; one junction is at the temperature to be measured the other is held at a fixed lower temperature; the current is proportional to the temperature difference

A shielded thermocouple was used to measure the upstream temperature of the transpiring gas .
This arrangement had the purpose to prevent heated gas to reach the thermocouple by natural convection .
Three thermocouples were placed at different locations in the aluminum disk surrounding the anode holder to determine its temperature .
Temperatures of the shield and of the surface of the water_cooled anode holder were measured by thermocouples to account_for heat received by the coolant but not originating from the anode plug .
The upstream gas temperature measured with the thermocouple shown in figure 2 was **f .
