We describe a new calorimeter for measuring heat capacity in the range 1-35 K, using a silicon chip bolometer as sample holder, temperature sensor, and sample heater. The apparatus is capable of measuring very small samples (1-500 mg), and may be used with a number of different experimental methods.
