Short communication: improvements to INRIM Johnson noise thermometer

Publication Date
  • Design


This paper presents a progress report for the Johnson noise thermometry experiment which is under development at the Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica. In order to aim at an uncertainty level better than 10−5 and to reduce the measurement time, a new setup has been developed. In particular, several modifications have been applied to the experiment described by Callegaro et al. (Metrologia 46: 409, 2009) to improve the traceability to voltage, resistance and frequency standards, and new amplifiers have been designed in order to expand the working frequency range up to 20 kHz, with a sensing resistor of 1 kohm, while maintaining amplifier induced systematic errors to an acceptable level
