Archival and Theoretical Considerations for Isotopic Dependence in the e-H2 Fixed Points

Abstract

We examine these isotopic dependence for the case of the e-H2 triple point (TP), and the two vapor pressure (VP) points of the ITS-90 defined near 33 kPa and 101 kPa. The archival experimental data allows predictions to be made for the shift in the TP temperature based on extrapolations of observations at large concentrations of ^2^H. Similarly, archival hydrogen vapor pressure measurements of pure ^2^H^1^H allow calculation of the dependence on ^2^H concentration in the dilute limit for ideal solutions. These predictions alone, however, are insufficient to establish a consensus prescription for making corrections for isotopic variations in hydrogen gas samples. New experimental work in this area will be required to resolve these issues and remove the associated ambiguities from the ITS, which probably exceed 0.5 mK.
