The NIST Silicon lattice comparator has ben in service in various forms since the 1970s. It is capable of measuring the difference in lattice spacing between specimens of high-quality float-zone silicon to delta-d/d approximately 6e-9. It has recently undergone a thorough update of its control systems and mechanics. These upgrades result in the ability to collect more stable data with less settling time of the instrument, and with less operator intervention.
