Settling Times of High-Value Standard Resistors



Dean G. Jarrett, Randolph Elmquist


An investigation of the response of high-value resistance standards and elements to applied potential has showed that the processes used to prepare and construct high-value resistance standards can effect the settling times of these standards. Improvements made to the processes used at NIST to fabricate high-value resistance standards will be discussed.
