Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has fabricated stable, transportable 10 MΩ} and 1 GΩ} standard resistors for use in an international comparison of high resistances. This fabrication process is being applied to the construction of standard resistors of values up to 10 TΩ}, with initial results indicating significant improvements in stability and fewer adverse effects induced by mechanical shock and vibration.
