|Title:||Microwave measurements for gas thermometry up to the copper point|
|Published:||May 13, 2013|
|Abstract:||We measured 5 microwave resonance frequencies fN of an argon-filled cylindrical cavity at temperatures up to 1349 K. The repeatability of both the measured frequencies u(fN) and the scaled half-widths u(gN)/ fN was better than 10-6fN. The measurement techniques are compatible with highly accurate acoustic gas thermometry up to the copper point at 1358 K and might be adaptable to refractive index gas thermometry.|
