1. Comparison measurements of low-pressure between a laser refractometer and ultrasonic manometer
Published: 5/13/2016
Authors: Patrick F Egan, Jack A Stone Jr., Jacob E Ricker, Jay H Hendricks
Abstract: We have developed a new low-pressure sensor which is based on the measurement of (nitrogen) gas refractivity inside a Fabry-Perot (FP) cavity. We compare pressure determinations via this laser refractometer to that of well-established ultrasonic man ...

2. MEASURING PRESSURE AND VACUUM WITH LIGHT: A NEW PHOTONIC, QUANTUM-BASED, PRESSURE STANDARD
Published: 9/3/2015
Authors: Jay H Hendricks, Jacob E Ricker, Jack A Stone Jr., Patrick F Egan, Gregory E Scace, Gregory F Strouse, Douglas A Olson, Donavon Gerty
Abstract: The future of pressure and vacuum measurement will rely on lasers and Fabry-Perot optical cavities, and will be based on fundamental physics of light interacting with a gas. Light interacts at the quantum level with matter such that light travels at ...

3. Performance of a dual Fabry-Perot cavity refractometer
Published: 8/18/2015
Authors: Patrick F Egan, Jack A Stone Jr., Jay H Hendricks, Jacob E Ricker, Gregory E Scace, Gregory F Strouse
Abstract: We have built and characterized a refractometer that utilizes two Fabry-Perot cavities formed on a dimensionally stable spacer. In the typical mode of operation, one cavity is held at vacuum and the other cavity is filled with nitrogen gas. The dif ...

4. Clearing the fog for best in the world air-wavelength
Published: 7/1/2015
Authors: Patrick F Egan, Jack A Stone Jr.
Abstract: Laser interferometry, the basis for modern length metrology, achieves very high accuracies as a consequence of the stable, well-known frequencies of laser sources. However, length measurements in air also require corrections based on precise knowledg ...

5. Metrology for comparison of displacements at the picometer level
Published: 7/31/2014
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr., Patrick F Egan, Jay H Hendricks, Gregory F Strouse, Douglas A Olson, Jacob E Ricker, Gregory E Scace, Donavon Gerty
Abstract: An apparatus capable of comparing displacements with picometer accuracy is currently being designed at NIST. In principle, we wish to compare one displacement in vacuum to a second, equal displacement in gas, in order to determine gas refractive inde ...

6. Picometer Metrology for Precise Measurement of Refractive Index, Pressure, and Temperature
Published: 12/18/2013
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr., Patrick F Egan, Donavon Gerty, Jay H Hendricks, Douglas A Olson, Jacob E Ricker, Gregory E Scace, Gregory F Strouse
Abstract: Fabry-Perot interferometers can be used for very precise measurement of the refractive index of gasses. This can enable increased accuracy of interferometer-based length measurement. In addition, because the refractive index of a gas depends on its ...

7. Picometer metrology for precise measurement of refractive index, pressure, and temperature
Published: 7/14/2013
Authors: Jack A Stone Jr., Patrick F Egan, Jay H Hendricks, Gregory F Strouse, Douglas A Olson, Jacob E Ricker, Gregory E Scace
Abstract: For several years we have been studying the use of Fabry-Perot interferometers for precise measurement of the refractive index of gasses, where the primary motivation has been to improve interferometer-based length measurement. Because the refractiv ...

8. Weak value thermostat with 0.2 mK precision
Published: 12/1/2012
Authors: Patrick F Egan, Jack A Stone Jr.
Abstract: A new laser-based thermostat sensitive to 0.2 mK at room temperature is reported. The method utilizes a fluid-filled prism and interferometric weak value amplification to sense nanoradian deviations of a laser beam: due to the high thermooptic coef ...

9. Performing three dimensional measurements on micro-scale features using a flexible CMM fiber probe with ellipsoidal tip
Published: 1/5/2012
Authors: Balasubramanian Muralikrishnan, Jack A Stone Jr., Craig M Shakarji, John Richard Stoup
Abstract: The tip of a traditional CMM probe used for measurements of macro-scale artifacts is generally a sphere of excellent geometry. Its known diameter (from a prior calibration) and form along with the known approach direction (which is normal to the surf ...

10. Absolute refractometry of dry gas to {+ or -}3 parts in 10^u9^
Published: 6/20/2011
Authors: Patrick F Egan, Jack A Stone Jr.
Abstract: We present a method of measuring the refractive index of dry gases absolutely at 632.8 nm wavelength using a Fabry-Perot cavity with an expanded uncertainty of < 3 {multiply} 10^u-9^ (coverage factor {I}k{/I} = 2. The main contribution to this uncer ...
