A method for measuring the complex impedance of transition-edge-sensor (TES) calorimeters is discussed. The impedance of a Mo/Au superconducting TES calorimeter is measured, using this technique. It is found that the impedance data is in correlation with the linear calorimeter model. The measurements of unprecedented accuracy of the heat capacity are also obtained.
