Accurate High-Ohmic Resistance Measurement Techniques up to 1 P

Gert Rietveld, Dean Jarrett, and Beat Jeckelmann, “Accurate High-Ohmic Resistance Measurement Techniques up to 1 PW”, Proceedings of the 2014 Conference on Precision Electromagnetic Measurements (CPEM 2014), Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, pp. 290 – 291 (2014).

An overview is presented on precision high-ohmic resistance measurements for values of 100 MΩ and above. The two main measurement techniques in this resistance range are discussed, the current integration technique and the adapted Wheatstone bridge. The quality of high-ohmic resistance standards, especially their time constants, temperature and voltage dependence, often is limiting the final uncertainty that can be reached. Still, expanded uncertainties (k = 2) of only a few parts in 105 are achievable at the 1 TΩ level.
