THE NIST MAGNETIC SUSPENSION MASS COMPARATOR: A LOOK AT TYPE B UNCERTAINTY

Published

Author(s)

Corey A. Stambaugh

Abstract

The magnetic suspension mass comparator is a unique system for calibrating kilogram artifacts between vacuum and air. While the MSMC allows for direct vacuum-to-air mass measurements, there are several corrections that need to be accounted. Here, we discuss in greater detail our work to understand the systematic error that results from magnetic interactions with the outside world.
