Thermocouples
Thermocouples are best used over an extremely wide range and in harsh environmental conditions, and follow a standard response curve. Less accurate than other sensors, special techniques must be employed when used thermocouples to approach temperature accuracies of 1% temperature. Thermocouples are used for their small size, extremely wide temperature range (exceeding high temperature limits of Platinum RTD's), and simple temperature measurement technology.

Capacitance
Capacitance sensors are ideally suited for use as temperature control sensors in strong magnetic fields because they exhibit virtually no magnetic field dependence. Small variations in the capacitance/temperature curves occur upon thermal cycling. It is recommended that temperature in zero field be measured with another temperature sensor, and that the capacitance sensor be employed as a control element only.
