11. The Calibration of Vacuum Gauges
Published: 3/1/2006
Author: Patrick J Abbott
Abstract: Vacuum gauges are used to measure pressures below the local atmospheric pressure. The success of many processes relies on an accurate vacuum pressure measurement, making calibration of vacuum gauges essential. This paper discusses the issues relate ...

12. The Effect of Ambient Temperature on the Sensitivity of Hot-Cathode Ionization Gauges
Published: 1/1/2005
Authors: Patrick J Abbott, J P. Looney, Pardeep Mohan

13. An Automated Vacuum Gage Calibration System
Published: 2/12/1998
Authors: Patrick J Abbott, M S Benner

14. Commercial helium permeation leak standards: Their properties and reliability
Published: 2/12/1996
Authors: Patrick J Abbott, S A Tison
Abstract: Standard leaks or leak artifacts are used extensively in industrial and research environments, typically for the calibration of helium leak detectors. The most commonly used leak is the helium permeation type, which uses a glass, quartz, or polym ...

15. Reproducibility of the Accommodation Coefficient of the Spinning Rotor Gauge
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Ren Fang Chang, Patrick J Abbott
Abstract: Eight spinning rotor gauges were calibrated numerous times simultaneously with the primary midrange vacuum standard at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, over a period of fifteen months to assess the reproducibility of their accommod ...

16. Supplementary Comparison APMP.M.P-S2 (Bilateral Comparison) at a Nominal Pressure of 0.05 Pa
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Pardeep Mohan, Patrick J Abbott
Abstract: High vacuum (10-1 to 10-4 Pa) standards are maintained by many of the world s National Metrology Institutes (NMI). For purposes of trade equity as well as scientific integrity, it is important that NMI s compare their standards and determine a degre ...
