|Title:||Improvements to the Johnson Noise Thermometry System for Measurements at 505 ‹ 800 K|
|Published:||September 12, 2013|
|Abstract:||The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is currently using Johnson noise thermometry (JNT) to determine the deviations of the International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90) from the thermodynamic temperature in the range of 505‹933 K, overlapping the ranges of both acoustic gas-based and radiation-based thermometry. Our JNT system features a quantized voltage noise source (QVNS) as a reference for the noise power spectrum. This paper describes the modifications to the system as a challenge to overcome the limitations in our previous work and furthermore enable measurements at higher temperatures. Such modifications include development of the resistance probe for higher temperatures and modifying the amplifiers. We present the results as well as the possible future improvements learnt through the measurements.|
