Research opportunities are available to advance the measurement of fluid flow, airspeed, liquid density, and volume as well as the measurement and quantum mechanical calculation of the thermodynamic and transport properties of gases for use as standards. Areas of particular interest include the development of next-generation standards for measuring temperature, pressure, and flow; the use of critical venturis as primary flow standards; the realization of a primary pressure standard based on measuring the dielectric constant of helium; the development of novel measurement techniques and models for the thermophysical and interfacial properties of process streams; and the application of dielectric acoustic techniques to determine the thermophysical properties of semiconductor process gases.
