Calibration of Hygrometers with the Hybrid Humidity Generator

September 23, 2021
Author(s)
Christopher W. Meyer, Tobias Herman, W. Wyatt Miller
We describe here the calibration of customer hygrometers using the NIST Hybrid Humidity Generator (HHG). This generator produces humidified air with water amount fractions (water mole fractions) ranging from 1.0×10−7 to 0.57 using calibration gas flows up

Optimizing Data Logger Setup for Vaccine Temperature Monitoring

September 1, 2015
Author(s)
Michal J. Chojnacky, Luis Chaves Santacruz, W Wyatt Miller, Gregory F. Strouse
Accidental freezing of refrigerated vaccine represents a significant public and private healthcare cost. Freeze-damaged vaccines lose their effectiveness, putting communities at risk. U.S. immunization programs have strengthened vaccine storage and

Transitioning from mercury thermometers to alternative thermometers

May 14, 2015
Author(s)
Christina D. Cross, W Wyatt Miller, Gregory F. Strouse
The presentation discusses approaches to effectively transition from mercury thermometers to alternative thermometers with the goal of reducing the level of mercury released into the environment from the disposal or accidental breakage of mercury

Uncertainty Budget for the NIST Hybrid Humidity Generator

December 1, 2012
Author(s)
Christopher W. Meyer, W Wyatt Miller, Dean C. Ripple, Gregory E. Scace
We provide here a detailed uncertainty budget for the new Hybrid Humidity Generator (HHG) that has been constructed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The HHG generates frost/dew points from –70 °C to +85 °C using calibration gas

A Humidity Generator for Temperatures to 200 degC and Pressures to 1.6 MPa

November 30, 2012
Author(s)
D Vega-Maza, W. Wyatt Miller, Dean C. Ripple, Gregory E. Scace
We have constructed a new humidity generator that produces gas streams of known moisture content at temperatures from 85 °C to 200 °C, absolute pressures from 0.2 MPa to 1.6 MPa, and relative humidities from 10 % to 90 %. The generator produces a moist gas

Thermal Analysis of Refrigeration Systems Used for Vaccine Storage

November 2, 2009
Author(s)
Michal J. Chojnacky, W Wyatt Miller, Dean C. Ripple, Gregory F. Strouse
Each year, billions of dollars of vaccines are stored in refrigerators at the facilities of a variety of medical providers. Many vaccines must be maintained in the range 2 °C to 8 °C to retain product potency. We have tested the performance of two types of

Design and Performance of the New NIST Hybrid Humidity Generator

June 1, 2009
Author(s)
Christopher W. Meyer, W Wyatt Miller, Dean C. Ripple, Gregory E. Scace
A new humidity generator has been constructed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and is now fully operational. The NIST Hybrid Humidity Generator (HHG) has replaced the Two-Pressure (2-P) Humidity Generator Mark II as the NIST primary

Calibration of Hygrometers with the Hybrid Humidity Generator

December 14, 2008
Author(s)
Christopher W. Meyer, Joseph T. Hodges, Peter H. Huang, W Wyatt Miller, Dean C. Ripple, Gregory E. Scace
We describe here the calibration of customer hygrometers using a new humidity generator that has been commissioned at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The NIST Hybrid Humidity Generator (HHG) generates frost/dew points from –70 °C to +85

Design and Performance of the new NIST Hybrid Humidity Generator

August 1, 2008
Author(s)
Christopher W. Meyer, W Wyatt Miller, Dean C. Ripple, Gregory E. Scace
A new humidity generator has been constructed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Once fully operational, the NIST Hybrid Humidity Generator (HHG) will replace the Two-Pressure (2-P) Humidity Generator Mark II as the NIST primary

Large Anisotropy Via Oblique Sputtering of Ta Underlayers

May 1, 2001
Author(s)
John E. Bonevich, Robert D. McMichael, Chang H. Lee, P J. Chen, W Wyatt Miller, William F. Egelhoff Jr.
Anisotropy fields in excess of 120 KA/m (1500 Oe) have been produced in 3 nm to 5 nm thick polycrystalline films of Co by oblique sputtering of Ta underlayers. The unusually high anisotropy is magnetostatic in origin, and is induced by corrugations on the

Strong Anisotropy in Thin Magnetic Films Deposited on Obliquely Sputtered Ta Underlayers

November 1, 2000
Author(s)
Robert McMichael, C G. Lee, John E. Bonevich, P J. Chen, W. Wyatt Miller, William F. Egelhoff Jr.
Anisotropy fields in excess of 120 kA/m (1500 Oe) have been produced in 3-5 nm- thick polycrystalline films of Co by oblique sputtering of Ta underlayers. The unusually high anisotropy is magnetostatic in origin, and is induced by corrugations on the

Calibration of Water Permeation Tubes

Author(s)
Gregory E. Scace, W Wyatt Miller
NIST provides traceability of permeation tube humidity generators to national humidity standards by measuring the water permeation rate of permeation tubes submitted for calibration. Permeation tubes undergoing calibration are installed into a specially
