CCT Working Group for Contact Thermometry (CCT-WG-CTh)

Terms of reference and tasks

The terms of reference of WG-CTh are to review and document progress in contact thermometry, with a focus on thermodynamic temperature determination and defined scales. The list of tasks has been updated according to the discussions at the WG-SP meeting at 31 May 2017 and is given below:


  • reviewing and reporting on measurements of T – T90 and T – T2000;

  • recommending key comparisons in contact thermometry to the CCT;

  • reviewing the research and application of primary contact thermometers to realize the kelvin;

  • updating the Mise en Pratique of the definition of the kelvin;

  • updating the Guide to the Realization of the ITS-90;

  • reviewing novel contact thermometry techniques.
