Robert Ian Wielgosz, Felicitas Arias, José-Maria Los Arcos, Michael Stock, Martin Milton
2017 Metrologia  
The startup meeting for the CB&KT programme for 'Metrology for Safe Food and Feed', focusing on mycotoxin metrology and standards, was held at the BIPM in April 2016, with the participation of INMETRO,  ...  The development of methods to characterize calcitonin calibrators was undertaken by a secondee from the HSA (Singapore), with the material intended as a future candidate key comparison material for small  ...  This will extend the present JVS comparisons (BIPM.EM-K10) at 1.018 V and 10 V to alternating signals. Both Josephson standards were compared indirectly by using a calibrator as a transfer standard.  ...

Metrology in electricity and magnetism: EURAMET activities today and tomorrow

F Piquemal, B Jeckelmann, L Callegaro, J Hällström, T J B M Janssen, J Melcher, G Rietveld, U Siegner, P Wright, M Zeier
2017 Metrologia  
This work has resulted in a new SRA of the second largest European funding programme: European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research.  ...  EURAMET is the European RMO and has been very prominent in developing a strategic research agenda (SRA) and has established a comprehensive research programme.  ...  For on-site calibrations a modular 1000 kV direct voltage divider was designed, manufactured, and calibrated as a joint effort of VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (MIKES), SP, VSL, PTB, and the  ...

Achievable Accuracy in Industrial Measurement of Dissipation Factor of Power Capacitors

Anders Bergman
2018 NCSLI Measure  
Modern dielectrics used in power capacitors can exhibit a dissipation factor lower than 0.005 %, which approaches the limits of presently available measurement techniques.  ...  It is shown that further metrological advances are necessary to lower uncertainty in the measurement to levels at least five times less than presently achievable, in order to ensure traceable and quality-assured  ...  As an example, the Josephson effect is used to link the second, Planck's constant, and the charge of the electron, to the unit for electromotive force (voltage) [23] and doing this is one of the tasks  ...
