MOEMS accelerometers are emerging as a pivotal trend in acceleration sensor technology. The accuracy of their measurements predominantly hinges on optical displacement detection methods. The coherent design and the congruence of the oscillator are pivotal for maximizing measurement efficacy. This study introduces a super-precise displacement measurement method, the self-traceable grating interferometry, marked by its direct traceability, high precision, and miniaturization, aligning seamlessly with the displacement measurement prerequisites of MOEMS accelerometers. Leveraging the properties of the self-traceable grating interferometry, we design, calculate, and simulate the oscillator of a self-traceable MOEMS accelerometer. Through the mechanical theory model, we deduced the stiffness and natural frequency of the oscillator. Utilizing the COMSOL software, simulations were run on its resonant modes, axial sensitivities, and stress distributions. Our design achievements include a oscillator with a remarkable displacement sensitivity reaching 10.01 μm/g and exhibiting minimal cross-coupling. Such advancements underscore the value of this research in the realm of direct traceability and the refinement of high-precision accelerometer measurement paradigms.

In recent years, the road transportation industry has witnessed significant advancements. While there have been improvements in vehicle transport efficiency and cargo capacity, there is a paramount need to enhance the safety management of transport vehicles by monitoring their routes and conditions in real time. Current vehicle terminal calibration systems exhibit significant positioning errors and sluggish information updates. This paper introduces a developed calibration system for satellite positioning of road transport vehicles. Through simultaneous measurement of displacement and speed data from both the calibration system and the vehicle terminal at varying speeds, the positioning discrepancies of the vehicle terminal were discerned. An innovative correction method, integrating genetic algorithms with a BP neural network, was proposed to rectify these errors. By comparing positioning data pre and post-correction, we observed maximum error reductions of 82.79%, 87.95%, and 89.55% respectively. Experimental outcomes affirm the efficacy of the BP neural network-based positioning error model, demonstrating substantial error correction capabilities.

Stable, strong magnetic fields are instrumental in scientific research, biomedicine, and material science. Addressing the challenges in measuring and tracing super-strong magnetic fields, we introduce a measurement method derived from the magnetic flux modulation principle, leading to the development of a highly stable magnetic field measuring instrument. By employing a refined signal conditioning circuit and harnessing the phase-locking principle to achieve optimal signal-to-noise ratio, we deduce the induced electromotive force corresponding to the magnetic induction intensity of the inspected strong magnetic field. Calibration of the instrument's coil constant with a standard magnetic field allows the constant to serve as a transfer standard, facilitating ultra-strong magnetic field measurements and calibrations. We examined superconducting strong magnetic fields within the 1-7 T range, providing an in-depth analysis and evaluation of the measuring device and coil constant. Our findings highlight that the measurement bias for the 1-7 T magnetic field is better than 0.083%. The relative uncertainty introduced by our instrument is up to 3×10−4, marking a significant advancement for ultra-strong magnetic field measurements.

Analysis of the Discrepancies Between the Contour Scanning and Double Ball Stylus Methods for Thread Pitch Diameter Measurement
WEI Hengzheng, PEI Limei, CUI Jianqiu, GUO Siyi, XIANG Sisi
2023, 67(6): 49-53. doi: 10.12338/j.issn.2096-9015.2023.0126
Abstract(183) HTML (62) PDF(37)
The pitch diameter serves as a crucial metric in assessing thread gauge quality. Measurement techniques for the thread pitch diameter predominantly employ a 1D-length measuring machine equipped with both a double-ball stylus and a contour scanner. During the APMP.L-S9-2019 cylindrical thread gauge international comparison, notable discrepancies were observed in the measurement outcomes of the two methods, especially for gauges with an inferior tooth profile. The contour scanning approach determines the pitch diameter by applying least-square fitting to the tooth profile, leading to a positional translation in comparison to the double-ball stylus method's actual contact surface. This causes the pitch diameter line to deviate. Consequently, when the straightness of the tooth profile is compromised, significant differences arise in the measurement results between the two methods. The findings have been corroborated through theoretical analysis coupled with experimental validation. For plug thread gauges, the contour scanning technique tends to yield measurements lower than the double-ball stylus method. Conversely, for ring thread gauges, the contour scanning's results surpass those of the double-ball stylus method. The differential between the two methods approximately equals the cumulative straightness of the tooth profile on both sides. The analytical methodology introduced herein is also relevant when comparing the three-wire and scanning methods.

2023, 67(6): 54-62. doi: 10.12338/j.issn.2096-9015.2023.0087
Abstract(128) HTML (44) PDF(31)
To ensure accurate determination of organic impurities in certified reference materials for organic purity, we studied the brominated flame retardant tetrabrombisphenol A (TBBPA). Using the area normalization and standard curve methods, we quantified its primary organic impurity, tribromobisphenol A, and evaluated the associated uncertainties. Additionally, the impurity's content was measured using quantitative nuclear magnetic resonance (qNMR). The impurity levels derived from the area normalization and standard curve methods were 0.70% ± 0.04% and 1.16% ± 0.09%, respectively. A combined purity estimate yielded 0.93% ± 0.24%, encompassing the qNMR result of 0.76% ± 0.03%. When significant discrepancies (>0.1%) arise between the area normalization and standard curve methods, their combined result can be adopted to guarantee the accuracy of the measurement.

2023, 67(6): 63-68. doi: 10.12338/j.issn.2096-9015.2023.0116
Abstract(144) HTML (46) PDF(39)
Constant temperature and humidity chambers play a crucial role, predominantly in the textile testing sector. The reliability of test results hinges on the precision of the chamber's temperature and humidity controls. Based on the metrological characteristics of these chambers, a stratified approach was employed to measure temperature, humidity, and the implications of door operations. Findings reveal that the chamber's metrological attributes are satisfactory. For optimal monitoring of lab temperature and humidity fluctuations, it is recommended to position the hygrometer at the room's central point. A notable observation is that an 80-second door opening can lead to humidity excursions, necessitating a 2-minute period post-door closure to regain stability. This study provides insights that can guide periodic reviews and everyday operations of the constant temperature and humidity chambers.
