Abstract

The automation of ultra-high resistance measurements at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the range 1 TOhm to 100 TOhm has been completed with the use of a programmable XY positioning system to facilitate the guarded connection of multiple standard resistors to an automated dual-source bridge. Automated guarded switching that is immune to leakages to ground is critical to the characterization of standard resistors and transfer standards in this range.
