Abstract

A transportable refractometer for assessment of kPa pressures with ppm level precision is presented. It is based on the GAs MOdulation Refractometry (GAMOR) methodology, making it resistant to fluctuations and drifts. At the National Metrology Institute at RISE, Sweden, the system assessed pressures in the 4.3 - 8.7 kPa range with sub-ppm precision (0.5 - 0.9 ppm). The system was thereafter disassembled, packed, and transported 1040 km to Umeå University, where it, after unpacking and reassembling, demonstrated a similar precision (0.8 - 2.1 ppm). This shows that the system can be disassembled, packed, transported, unpacked, and reassembled with virtually unchanged performance.
