We are constructing a cryogenic dual compensated calorimeter for loss measurements in superconducting materials. We plan to measure the losses due to the incomplete Meissner effect in slowly varying small magnetic fields appropriate for levitation. These measurements bear importance for the realization of the kilogram using the superconducting magnetic levitation method.
