Changes and Improvements in the 10 k-ohm Special Calibration Service
George R. Jones Jr., Marlin E. Kraft, Randolph Elmquist
The 1(ohm) level of resistance has been the source of the lowest standard uncertainties for d.c. resistance calibrations. At the 10 k(ohm) level, equally good transport standards are available and many laboratories also rely on these standards. NIST uses an automated Warshawsky-type guarded bridge circuit to compare these standards at the 10 k(ohm) level, and cryogenic current comparators to maintain the working 10 k(ohm) reference standards. These recent improvements allow a reduction in the quoted uncertainty of our 10 k(ohm) level customer calibrations. We are working to duplicate the Warshawsky bridge and characterize additional standards to prepare for the relocation of this and other measurement systems, upon the opening of NIST's new Advanced Measurements Laboratory.
