Blackbody sources with nearly unity emittance that are in equilibrium with a pure freezing metal such as gold, silver, or copper are used as primary standard sources in the International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90). Recently, a facility using radio
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) candela is maintained via standard photometers which have shown long-term stability better than 0.1% per year. The detector-based method has allowed us to reduce the uncertainties of calibrations
