The key comparison reference value of CCEM-K4 is obtained from the weighted average of the results of the CCEM-K4 participants who derive their reference standard of capacitance by means of an independent realization of the farad from a calculable capacitor. It is chosen such that: x_{R} = x_{0} x (1 + m_{R}), with x_{R} = 10 pF exactly, that is, m_{R} = 0. The standard uncertainty of m_{R} is u_{R} = 0.017x10^{-6}. |
The degree of equivalence of each laboratory with respect to the reference value is given by a pair of terms: D_{i} = (m'_{i} - m_{R}) and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), U_{i} (see detailed calculation of U_{i} on page 17 of the CCEM-K4 Final Report), where m'_{i} is deduced from m_{i} by adding a constant factor chosen so that the reference value is a nominal 10 pF. |
The degree of equivalence between two laboratories i and j is given in the CCEM-K4 Final Report. |
The input data for establishing the link between EUROMET.EM-K4 and CCEM-K4 are taken from the two tables given in Laboratory individual measurements. Seven laboratories (BIPM, LNE, NMIA, NIST, VSL, NPL and PTB) participated in both comparisons. |
The CCEM-K4 key comparison reference value and degrees of equivalence are unaltered by the linking procedure. The linking procedure consists of evaluating the correction d to apply to the result |
The degree of equivalence of each laboratory participant in EUROMET.EM-K4 with respect to the CCEM-K4 key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms: D_{i} = [(m_{i-EUR} - m_{iR-EUR}) + d] and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), U_{i}, based on the quadratic combination of u_{R}, u_{d}, t_{i-EUR} and U_{i-EUR}/2 (see page 2 and Table 2 of the Linkage Report). |
The complete matrix of equivalence is built up as explained on pages 2 and 3 and in Table 3 of the Linkage Report. |
The NMIA, NIM and VNIIM participated in both ccomparisons and were used as linking laboratories. The linking procedure used to link the results of APMP.EM-K4.1 to those of CCEM-K4 is explained in paragraph 6.5 on page 17 of the APMP.EM-K4.1 Final Report, and is similar to that used to link EUROMET.EM-K4 to CCEM-K4.
The calculated linking correction d = -0.004 µF/F, with a standard uncertainty u_{d }= 0.017 µF/F.
The degree of equivalence of each laboratory participant in APMP.EM-K4.1 with respect to the CCEM-K4 key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms D_{i} and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), U_{i}. The computation of D_{i} and U_{i} can be found in paragraph 6.5.4 on page 19 of the APMP.EM-K4.1 Final Report. |
The complete matrix of equivalence is built up as explained in paragraph 6.5.5 on page 20 of the APMP.EM-K4.1 Final Report. |
The NIST and NRC participated in both comparisons and were used as linking laboratories. The linking procedure used to link the results of SIM.EM-K4 to those of CCEM-K4 is explained in Appendix F on page 40 of the SIM.EM-K4 Final Report.
The degree of equivalence of each laboratory participant in SIM.EM-K4 with respect to the CCEM-K4 key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms D_{i} and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), U_{i}. |
The pair-wise degrees of equivalence involving the SIM.EM-K4 participants are not computed. |
The PTB and VNIIM participated in both comparisons and were used as linking laboratories. The linking procedure used to link the results of COOMET.EM-K4 to those of CCEM-K4 is explained in Section 7.4 of the COOMET.EM-K4 Final Report.
The degree of equivalence of each laboratory participant in COOMET.EM-K4 with respect to the CCEM-K4 key comparison reference value is given by a pair of terms D_{i} and its expanded uncertainty (k = 2), U_{i}. |
The pair-wise degrees of equivalencebetween participants in COOMET.EM-K4 are given on p. 12 of the COOMET.EM-K4 Final Report. |
