The design and performance of a thermal conductivity gauge to measure the ratio of ortho‐ to para‐hydrogen content is reported. The gauge employs an ultra‐thin film as heater and sensor. This ratiometer has a nearly pressure‐independent thermal conductivity response over a broad pressure range. The thermal conductivity of hydrogen gas and nitrogen gas have been measured and found qualitatively correct.
