Abstract

At the core of the NIST on a Chip (NoAC) program is the idea that measurement technology can be developed to enable metrology to be done "outside the National Metrology Institute" by virtue of deployed and often miniaturized standards (that can also serve as sensors) that are based on fundamental properties of nature and are therefore directly traceable to the international system of units known as the SI. Nested within this idea is the development of quantum-based standards for SI traceability, what NIST is now calling, QSI, or Quantum based International System of units. More specifically, this paper will cover NIST efforts in the area of thermodynamic metrology relating to pressure, vacuum and temperature measurements.
