Abstract

A new standard for the calibration of refractometers has been developed. Standard Reference Material (SRM) 1922 is a mineral oil with a refractive index nD = 1.46945 at 20 degrees C, which is within the range of the Brix scale (% sucrose). The change in refractive index with temperature (dn/dT) has been characterized for the range 15 degrees C to 35 degrees C to allow for calibrations within that range of temperatures. The refractive indices were measured at 5 wavelengths in the visible spectrum by using the method of minimum deviation with a +/- 2-3 x 10(-5) uncertainty at 20 degrees C. The values of nD and dnD/dT were determined by fits of a two-term Cauchy function to the values at the measured wavelengths with a +/- 6 x 10(-5) uncertainty in nD at 20 degrees C.
