A new form of photo-electric photometer or colorimeter is described which permits of accurate and objective readings in a wide range of colorimetric work with small quantities of solutions. The instrument is of the null-point type and hence requires calibration to suit the particular estimation.
The writer is indebted to the Earl of Moray Fund of the University of Edinburgh for financial assistance towards the expenses of the earlier part of the work.
The original model was made by A. H. Baird of Edinburgh, the model described above by Wm. Watson and Sons, London, to whom, and to Mr W. E. Watson-Baker, I am indebted for suggestions on a number of points.
