Abstract

Recent improvements on the ECCS experiment at PTB are reported. A 5-junction single-electron R-pump is shown to shuttle electrons with a relative transfer error of 5×10-8. Moreover, the relative uncertainty of the setup for the cryogenic capacitor voltage measurement has been reduced to urel less than or equal to} 10-9. Further perspectives related to data evaluation and analysis on the ECCS experiment is also discussed.
