Treatment of Conditional Measurement Bias in Measuring Instruments

by Hugo Gasca, Luis Omar Becerra, Victor Serrano, & Luis Manuel Peña

Calibration information of experimental instruments often is used for correcting measurements. In this work we present examples of analysis of historic data from specific instruments. Significant evidence that current recommendations and practices suggesting the measurements correction may introduce bias not covered by the declared uncertainty is given. A general procedure to handle consistently this situation is outlined. >> Read full article (PDF)
