The transition between normal conduction and superconductivity in superconducting materials can be exploited as a highly sensitive thermometer. Transition temperatures can be tailored through the selection of materials, their component cases of more than one material. Two bilayer configurations, Ag/Al and Au/Mo, are examined, including details of preparation, testing, and encountered difficulties. Proposed designs for spaceflight detector applications are discussed.
