Focuses on temperature stabilization by inertial feedback control, which was proven as a powerful tool to create the ultrastable environment essential for high resolution calorimetry. Use of a thermally insulated mass connected to a base through Seebeck effect sensors as a reference to control the base temperature; Relation between the thermopile signal and the heat capacity of the reference mass.
