Evaluation of NMIJ Traveling Dual Source Bridge Using NIST Adapted Wheatstone Bridge



Takehiko Oe, Shamith U. Payagala, Dean G. Jarrett, Nobu-Hisa Kaneko


DC high resistance measurement capability has been evaluated using a NMIJ traveling dual source bridge between NIST and NMIJ. The NMIJ bridge determines the resistance ratio by measuring the voltage ratio using a digital multimeter, 3458A. Based on the same 1 MΩ value calibrated using 2- terminal cryogenic current comparator, a 10 GΩ was calibrated by repeating 10:1 measurement with both systems. The measured 10 GΩ values were agreed less than 1 μΩ/Ω.
