The measurement of specific heat provides unique information concerning the superconducting state. It has the advantage over many other techniques as in that it is a bulk thermodynamic probe and as such is relatively insensitive to the presence of minority impurity phases. For this thesis, two calorimeters were designed, built and calibrated to measure ae specific heat of various exotic superconductors in the form of sub-milligram single crystals.
