Abstract

We describe dissipation factor measurements of 10 pF fused-silica capacitance standards from 50 Hz to 20 kHz, using a toroidal cross capacitor and a 10 pF nitrogen-filled capacitor as the references. The relative combined standard uncertainties are 0.56x10^-6, 0.16x10^-6, and 0.26x10^-6 at 100 Hz, 1 kHz, and 10 kHz, respectively.
