Towards an improved helium-based refractometer for pressure measurements
AbstractThis paper describes a quantum realization of the pascal based a helium absolute refractometer at 532 nm. The short-term stability in pressure is ± 2 mPa with a resolution in pressure of this new optical pressure standard is better than 1 mPa with temperature stability about 1 mK. A new design of the refractometer is presented to have better temperature stability and accurate temperature measurements to reach uncertainties in pressure better than current conventional methods.
