An oscillating rectangular vane suspended by a fine quartz fiber is used to determine the absolute pressure of the gas in which it is located. Aside from being an absolute instrument, the advantages of such a device are (1) simplicity, (2) the fact that it does not change the pressure when an observation is made as do many other types of gauges, and (3) the absence of a heated filament which may decompose the gas under study.
