To meet the testing and calibration requirements of the flow-through tritium ionization chamber, radioactive reference gas DT with different activity concentrations should be prepared. With the aid of the tritium-containing heavy water moderator and resin purification system in the CANDU6 reactor of Third Qinshan Nuclear Power Co., Ltd., the moderator activity concentration was obtained by liquid scintillation counting measurement-electrolysis method, and the hydrogen isotope abundance of the electrolytic gas was analyzed by mass spectrometry, and with the implementation of the PVT exponential dilution method, a preparation device for ultra-wide concentration radioactive reference gas DT was developed. The device was designed with a catalytic-oxidation-liquid scintillation counting verification unit and an exhaust gas collection-reuse processing unit, while isotope infiltration and inner wall electroplating and other measures were adopted for sample preparation to reduce the adsorption-memory effect on the device wall. The device has the advantages of small size, wide activity concentration range, low adsorption effect of low concentration DT, low cross-contamination, and low uncertainty. The prepared radioactive reference gas DT has an activity concentration range from 4.0×104~1.0×1014 Bq/m3 at the standard state, which can meet the needs of different types and applications of flow-through tritium ionization chamber testing and calibration in China.

To grasp the metrological performance indicators of the BeO optically stimulated luminescent (OSL) dosimetry system and verify whether it meets the needs of personal dose monitoring, the OSL dosemeter containing BeO optically stimulated luminescent detectors was placed in and irradiated with X-ray and γ-ray reference radiation fields. Performance test research on nonlinear response, coefficient of variation, energy response, angular response, and repeatability were carried out for the personal dose equivalent Hp(10). The nonlinear response ranged from 0.92 to 1.05 in the dose range of 50 μSv to 1 Sv, and the coefficient of variation ranged from 0.55% to 4.8%. The energy response ranged from 0.71 to 1.01 in the energy range of 33 keV to 1.25 MeV. The angular response ranged from 0.97 to 1.22 in the range of 0° to ±75° angle of incidence. The irradiation dose of 1 mSv, 5 mSv and 10 mSv were repeated 8 times, and the corresponding dose repeatability were 0.99 - 1.00, 0.99 - 1.00 and 0.97 - 1.00, respectively. The results showed that the BeO OSL dosimetry system meets the requirements of the IEC 62387-2020 standard and can be used for personal dose monitoring.

Near-infrared spectroscopy rapid analysis is one of the main methods to detect the ethanol content in gasoline, and the selection of the spectrum is an important factor affecting the prediction accuracy of the rapid detection model. In this study, a rapid analysis method of near-infrared spectroscopy based on an effective characteristic spectrum was established to improve the accuracy of detection of ethanol content in gasoline. By comparing the near-infrared spectra of gasoline with different concentrations of ethanol content, the effective characteristic spectrum of ethanol molecules in gasoline was determined to be 4524.183~5044.869 cm−1 and 5985.961~7108.329 cm−1. The optimal pre-processing method for near-infrared spectroscopy was chosen, and modeling analysis was carried out using the full-spectrum and effective characteristic spectrum. The relevant parameters of the model established using the effective characteristic spectrum are as follows: the root-mean-square error of cross-validation (RMSECV) is 0.5849, the internal cross-validation correlation coefficient (${{R}}_{\text{CV}}^{\text{2}}$) is 0.9991, the root-mean-square error of prediction (RMSEP) is 0.6090, and the external verification correlation coefficient (${{R}}_{\text{P}}^{\text{2}}$) of the prediction set is 0.9989. Compared with the full-spectrum modeling analysis, the RMSECV was reduced by 30.27 %, and the RMSEP was reduced by 18.58%. In conclusion, the quantitative analysis model established by using the characteristic spectrum has higher accuracy and can meet the need for rapid analysis of ethanol content in gasoline.

Total radiant flux is one of the technical indicators to characterize the radiation properties of near-UV LEDs, which can be derived by measuring the total spectral radiant flux (TSRF). In recent years, the National Institute of Metrology has carried out research on the measurement technology of TSRF, and established a standard device for measuring the TSRF ranging from 350 to 1100 nm. To verify the reliability of the uncertainty assessment in the near-UV region, the TSRF and total radiant flux values of near-UV LEDs were measured using a TSRF standard measurement device and a self-built horizontal goniospectroradiometer, respectively. The comparison shows that the values obtained by the two technical approaches are consistent within the uncertainty range. The uncertainty assessment of the TSRF standard measurement device in the near-UV region is reasonable and the values are reliable.

To improve measurement efficiency, calibration laboratories are gradually employing automatic measurement systems instead of manual measurements. At present, the data directly generated by the automatic measurement system focuses on the presentation of the measurement results but lacks the key information elements required by ISO-17025 for the original records and certificate reports. In the meantime, when carrying out mass measurements in small nominal values, it is easy to generate incomplete data due to measurement interruptions caused by falling weights. After the measurement, it is often necessary for inspectors to process data manually. Therefore, in the actual inspection work, the data analysis and processing of the automatic measurement system still require a lot of manpower. In this paper, combined with the features of mass measurements in small nominal value, a data analysis and processing method based on the automatic measurement system was proposed. Functions such as automatic segmentation and reorganization of data, identification of unqualified results, and processing of incomplete data were added. reduces the interference of human factors. The method realized automatic analysis of data, automatic generation of original records and certificate reports, reduced human factor interference, and further enhanced the efficiency of quality inspection and automatic data processing and analysis.

With the gradual maturity of the laser gyro manufacturing process and the breakthrough of lock-in and other major issues, the laser gyro goniometer has become a high-precision and high-sensitivity multi-parameter goniometer. This paper carries out a comprehensive test for its metrological performance for the first time and analyzes the main error sources of the laser gyro goniometer in detail, including three main error sources such as the installation error of the laser gyro, the turntable unlevel error, and the unstable error of the rotating speed. The simulation and estimation of the error introduced by each factor are analyzed. The random error of the laser gyro goniometer is also analyzed by using the classical Allan variance method. The results show that the uncertainty of comprehensive angle measurement is 0.4 ", and the angle measurement error is better than ± 0.5″.

Single sheet tester is conventional equipment for measuring the magnetic properties of electrical steel, the measurement methods have been well defined by the national standard GB/T 13789-2008 (IDT IEC 60404-3:2002) “Methods of measurement of the magnetic properties of magnetic sheet and strip by means of a single sheet tester”. With the development of new high-grade products with domain refinement, thin gauge, and low losses, the requirements for the performance of measurement equipment continue to increase, and the additional losses generated by the yoke of the single sheet tester during actual measurement is a problem that cannot be ignored. The current national standards only point out that the yoke should be made with low and constant losses, but no specific treatment is required for the additional losses generated by the yoke. This paper studied the measuring method of the loss generated by the yoke of a single sheet tester and analyzed its effect on the measuring result of the magnetic properties of electrical steel based on the data of yoke loss for different points of magnetic polarization, the method of deducting the yoke loss is given accordingly.

In this paper, we investigated the technology list and entity list of U.S. export control, based on which we conducted demand analysis on literature resources for institutions included in the entity list, and sorted out the literature that has been restricted from ordering. It is found that the majority of the restricted literature are conference proceedings, mostly from the two sensitive fields, military technology and nuclear technology, with the largest proportion of U.S. publications. Accordingly, recommendations on collection development such as increasing the collection rules for special literature, developing special literature data from a wide number of sources, further expanding the types of collection resources, and shifting the focus of collection resources from quantity to precise and comprehensive resource discovery are proposed. Finally, the competitive situation and challenges of science and technology faced by China, and the importance and strategic guarantee role of metrology science and technology literature in metrology research and innovation are analyzed.
