Key comparisons of the VNIIM and BIPM voltage standards

The results of key comparisons of the national primary standard of Russia for the unit of electrical voltage, the volt, at the Mendeleev Institute of Metrology (VNIIM) with the Josephson effect voltage standard at the BIPM are reported. For these measurements, VNIIM provided a voltage measure based on the Josephson effect with a nominal output voltage of 10 V. Measurements were made with apparatus from the BIPM voltage standard. The VNIIM voltage measure is planned for use as a transfer standard for comparison with national standards for the volt. The comparisons indicate a high degree of equivalence of the compared VNIIM and BIPM primary standards with a relative combined standard uncertainty of 2·10–10 at 10 V.
