11. A Capacitive Probe for Measuring the Clearance Between the Piston and the Cylinder of a Gas Piston Gauge
Published: 3/10/2010
Authors: Walter J. Bowers Jr., Douglas A Olson
Abstract: We propose a method of determining the radial clearance between the piston and cylinder of a gas piston gauge using a capacitive technique. This method allows a determination of the effective area of a piston gauge pressure standard, independent of ...

12. 1 Pa TO 15 000 Pa ABSOLUTE MODE COMPARISONS BETWEEN THE NIST ULTRASONIC INTERFEROMETER MANOMETERS AND NON-ROTATING FORCE-BALANCED PISTON GAUGES
Published: 1/11/2010
Authors: Jay H Hendricks, Douglas A Olson
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Low Pressure Manometry Project maintains and operates primary standard ultrasonic interferometer manometers (UIMs) over the pressure range of 1 mPa to 360 kPa. Over the past decade a new type ...

14. Towards portable vacuum standards
Published: 8/1/2009
Authors: Jay H Hendricks, Douglas A Olson
Abstract: Since the middle of the 17th century, when Italian physicist Evangelista Torricelli discovered that a glass tube filled with mercury could be used to measure atmospheric pressure, liquid-column manometers have been used as a primary standard to measu ...

17. Bilateral Comparison Between NIST (USA) and NPLI (India) in the Pneumatic Pressure Region 0.4 MPa to 4.0 Mpa
Published: 3/5/2007
Authors: Robert G Driver, Douglas A Olson, Nita Dilawar, A Bandyopadhyay
Abstract: We report the results of a bilateral comparison of pressure measurement between NIST and NPLI using a piston gauge transfer standard (TS), designated as NPLI-4, over the range of nominal applied pressure 0.4 MPa to 4.0 MPa. This TS was cross-floated ...

19. Primary Pressure Standards Based on Dimensionally Characterized Piston/Cylinder Assemblies
Published: 2/1/2006
Authors: James W Schmidt, K. Jain, A P. Miiller, Walter J. Bowers Jr., Douglas A Olson
Abstract: NIST has characterized two large diameter (35.8 mm) piston/cylinder assemblies as primary pressure standards in the range from 0.05 to 1.0 MPa with uncertainties approaching the best mercury manometers. The realizations of the artifacts as primary st ...
