31. Semiclassical fifth virial coefficients for improved ab initio helium-­4 standards
Published: 2/15/2012
Authors: Katherine Shaul, Andrew Schultz, David A. Kofke, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: For helium-4, we present ab initio, semi-classical calculations of virial coefficients Bn for for n = 2, 3, 4, and 5 from 50 K to 1000 K. Using our values of B4 and B5 and the more accurate literature values of B2 and B3, we argue that the ab initio ...

32. Improved First-Principles Calculation of the Third Virial Coefficient of Helium
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 8/31/2011
Authors: Giovanni Garberoglio, Michael R Moldover, Allan H Harvey
Abstract: We employ state-of-the-art pair and three-body potentials for helium to calculate its third density virial coefficient C(T) with uncertainties much smaller than those of the best experimental results, and approximately one-fourth the uncertainty of o ...

33. Progress toward redetermining the Boltzmann constant with a fixed-path-length cylindrical resonator
Published: 5/21/2011
Authors: Jintao Zhang, H. Lin, X.J. Feng, J.P. Sun, Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover, Y.Y. Duan
Abstract: We used a single, fixed-path-length cylindrical-cavity resonator to measure {I}c{/I}^d0^ = (307.8252 {+ or -} 0.0012) m{bullet}s^u−1^, the zero-density limit of the speed of sound in pure argon at the temperature of the triple point of water. ...

34. Present Estimates of the Differences Between Thermodynamic Temperatures and the ITS-90
Published: 1/29/2011
Authors: Joachim Fischer, M. DePodesta, K. D. Hill, Michael R Moldover, Laurent Pitre, R. Rusby, Peter Steur, Osamu Tamura, R. White, L. Wolber
Abstract: In 2005, the Consultative Committee for Thermometry (CCT) recommended the creation of a Mise en pratique for the definition of the kelvin and envisioned that future versions of the Mise en pratique would recommend values of the differences between ...

35. Accurate Measurements of Process Gas Flow with Laminar Flow Meters
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Thiago Cobu, Robert F Berg, John D Wright, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We calibrated three models of commercially-manufactured, laminar flow meters (LFMs) with nitrogen at four pressures (100 kPa, 200 kPa, 300 kPa, and 400 kPa) over a 10:1 flow range using NIST‰s primary flow standards and a physical model. Without addi ...

36. BOOK REVIEW Critical Behavior of Non-Ideal Systems (English Edition, 2008) D. Yu. Ivanov
Published: 8/30/2010
Author: Michael R Moldover
Abstract: None

37. Using Ab Initio "Data" to Accurately Determine the Fourth Density Virial Coefficient of Helium
Published: 6/25/2010
Authors: Michael R Moldover, Mark O McLinden
Abstract: We combine accurate ab initio calculations of the second and third density virial coefficients, B(T) and C(T), of 4He with measurements of its pressure-density-temperature behavior to determine the fourth density viral coefficient D(T). The measureme ...

38. Cylindrical Acoustic Resonator for the Re-determination of the Boltzmann Constant
Published: 6/1/2010
Authors: J.T. Zhang, H. Lin, X.J. Feng, Keith A Gillis, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We describe progress towards re-determining the Boltzmann constant {I}k{/I}^dB^ using two fixed-path, gas-filled, cylindrical, acoustic cavity resonators. The longitudinal acoustic resonance modes of a cylindrical cavity have lower quality factors {I ...

39. Feasibility of an Accurate Dynamic Standard for Water Flow
Published: 6/1/2010
Authors: Iosif I Shinder, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: We used NIST's primary water flow standard to study the feasibility of accurately determining mass flow rates {I}m{/I}^ddot^ of water "dynamically," that is from the time derivative of the weight {I}W{/I} of the collection tank: {I}m{/I ...

40. Improved NIST Airspeed Calibration Facility
Published: 3/23/2010
Authors: Iosif I Shinder, J. M. Hall, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) uses a laser Doppler anemometer (LDA) as a working standard for airspeed calibrations in the range 0.15 m/s to 75 m/s (0.34 to 168 miles/hour). We report improved procedures for calibrating th ...
