Abstract

NIM and NPL blackbody cavities based on the ITS-90 freezing points of In, Sn, Zn and Al have been compared by radiation thermometry. The average differences between the In, Sn and Zn, measured by NPL InGaAs radiation thermometer, are 5.3 mK, 2.2 mK and -7.3 mK. And the average differences between the Sn, Zn and Al, measured by NIM InGaAs radiation thermometer, are 1.4 mK, -5.8 mK and 13.7 mK. These differences are well within the uncertainties of the comparison. The NPL blackbody reference sources from 156 ºC to 1000 ºC were verified using both the NPL and the NIM InGaAs thermometers calibrated at the fixed points. The differences between the radiance temperature of the sources and the temperature measured by the contact sensor within the source are generally within 0.1 K.
