Acoustic Thermometry

By measuring the speed of sound in argon gas, we have determined thermodynamic temperature with unprecedented accuracy in the range 0 °C to 552 °C. Our results

Atomic Standard for Pressure

NIST scientists are developing a highly accurate primary standard for pressure in the range 2 MPa to 7 MPa based on fundamental physical properties of helium

Cryogenics

Low temperatures suppress noise and make quantum phenomena accessible. As a result, cryogenics play a crucial role in precision measurements.

Johnson Noise Thermometry

Johnson noise thermometry (JNT) is a primary temperature measurement technique based on the fundamental properties of thermal fluctuations in conductors. We

Nanocalorimetry Measurements

Nanocalorimetry Measurements provide a capability to measure heats of reaction of nanoscale samples with nanojoule sensitivity to detect reactions and quantify

Thermometry

The NIST Thermodynamic Metrology Group maintains and develops national standards of temperature (in the range 0.65 K to 1235 K), and supports calibration of all
