The NIST Thermodynamic Metrology Group maintains and develops national standards of humidity (in the range 1 nmol/mol to 0.6 mol/mol of water concentration), and supports calibration of all types of hygrometers and humidity generators. It also engages in research to improve humidity standards and study thermophysical properties of moist gases.
Our goals include:
Hybrid humidity generator – NIST's new primary standard humidity generator, the Hybrid Humidity Generator (HHG), replaces the NIST 2-Pressure Humidity Generator, Mark 2 (2-P). The HHG produces humidified air...
Gravimetric hygrometer for verification of NIST humidity standards – The NIST Thermometry Group recently christened a second generation gravimetric hygrometer, and a description of the hygrometer was published in Metrologia...
Dew-point measurements for water in compressed CO2 – The NIST Thermodynamic Metrology Group (TMG) is using its standard gravimetric hygrometer as part of a facility for making high-accuracy measurements of the dew point temperature for water in compressed CO2 as a function of mole fraction and pressure...
