Abstract

The low-ohmic resistance measurement capa¬bilities of VSL and NIST were compared using a set of resistors with values 100 mOhm, 10 mOhm, 1 mOhm, and 100 mOhm respectively. The measurement data of both laboratories generally agree well within the combined measurement uncertainties, ranging from 0.54 uOhm/Ohm at 100 mOhm to 4.3 uOhm/Ohm at 100 uOhm (k = 2). Careful transport of the resistors was crucial for achieving this result.
