|Title:||Development of a Four-channel System for Johnson Noise Thermometry|
|Published:||June 13, 2010|
|Abstract:||Long integration time is necessary to reach low uncertainty when measuring temperature through Johnson Noise Thermometry (JNT). The main goal of the NIST JNT experiment is to achieve a 6 10-6 relative uncertainty in the measurement of the water triple point, which could contribute to the re determination of Boltzmann s constant. A four-channel JNT system, which will reduce the measurement time two-fold, is being developed with new components, including a switchboard, an analog-digital converter (ADC) and a programmable, recharging power supply system. While implementing the new ADC, a source of systematic error was revealed, as well as a means to increase the measurement bandwidth.|
