Abstract

This paper reports progress on the NIST effort to develop a new calculable capacitor, focusing on improvement of the guard electrode motion control as well as issues associated with the overall electrode alignment. Design of a multi-wavelength Fabry-Perot interferometer which may facilitate testing the calculable capacitor in air is also discussed.
