CODATA Recommended Values of the Fundamental Physical Constants: 2014

  title={CODATA Recommended Values of the Fundamental Physical Constants: 2014},
  author={Peter J. Mohr and David B. Newell and Barry N. Taylor},
This paper gives the 2010 self-consistent set of values of the basic constants and conversion factors of physics and chemistry recommended by the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) for international use. The 2010 adjustment takes into account the data considered in the 2006 adjustment as well as the data that became available from 1 January 2007, after the closing date of that adjustment, until 31 December 2010, the closing date of the new adjustment. Further, it describes in…

The specific challenges posed by the present situation of gravitational constant experimental results are discussed and how these principles were applied to the most recent 2010 recommended value are discussed.

The Boltzmann project

With the redefinition of the kelvin, the broad research activities of the temperature community on the determination of the Boltzmann constant have been very successfully completed.

Alternative set of defining constants for redefinition of four SI units

We discuss different sets of defining constants, fixed values of which are considered in connection with the transition to new definitions of four SI units (the kilogram, the mole, the ampere, and

Considerations on future redefinitions of the kilogram, the mole and of other units

The definitions of some units of the Système International are likely to be revised as early as 2011 by basing them on fixed values of fundamental constants of nature, provided experimental

A summary of the Planck constant determinations using the NRC Kibble balance

We present a summary of the Planck constant determinations using the NRC watt balance, now referred to as the NRC Kibble balance. The summary includes a reanalysis of the four determinations

Precision measurement of the Newtonian gravitational constant

The history of the G measurement is briefly reviewed, and eleven values of G adopted in CODATA 2014 after 2000 are introduced and the latest two values published in 2018 are introduced using two independent methods.

Bayesian model selection: Application to adjustment of fundamental physical constants

The location-scale model is usually present in physics and chemistry in connection to the Birge ratio method for the adjustment of fundamental physical constants such as the Planck constant or the

The new SI and the fundamental constants of nature

The launch in 2019 of the new international system of units is an opportunity to highlight the key role that the fundamental laws of physics and chemistry play in our lives and in all the processes

Simplest Method for Calculating the Lowest Achievable Uncertainty of Model at Measurements of Fundamental Physical Constants

The CODATA procedure for calculating the recommended relative uncertainty of the measured fundamental physical constants is complex and is based on the use of powerful computers and modern

Low uncertainty Boltzmann constant determinations and the kelvin redefinition

The effect of the new definition of the kelvin referenced to the value of the Boltzmann constant k is that thekelvin is equal to the change of thermodynamic temperature T that results in a change of thermal energy kT by 1.380 65×10−23 J.



Metrology and Fundamental Constants

In July 1976, some thirty young scientists and their lecturers were privileged to participate in a conference on Metrology and the Fundamental Constants at Varenna, this being the 68th course in the

It seems a pity, in this day and age of camera-ready copies, almost instant printing and so on, that the Second International Conference on Precision Measurement and Fundamental Constants, which was

Quantum Electrodynamics

THE subject of quantum electrodynamics is extremely difficult, even for the case of a single electron. The usual method of solving the corresponding wave equation leads to divergent integrals. To


This issue of Metrologia differs markedly from those of recent years: the cover is changed, the layout of articles is not quite what it was before, and the colour of the new cover is that used for the original eleven volumes published in the period 1965-1975.
