Abstract

The last 25 years have seen tremendous progress in thermometry in the moderate temperature range (1 K to 1235 K). Various primary thermometers — based on different physics —have uncovered errors in the International Temperature Scale of 1990 and set the stage for the planned redefinition of the kelvin.
