3458A DCV reading with shorting link

I'm seeing a reading of between -50nV to -700nV on the 100mV range after completing an ACAL 0 and a CAL 0 with a newly cleaned copper shorting link installed.  A friend who also has a 3458A says his behaves the same, but that could just be two meters with the same issue!


I thought the whole point about doing a CAL 0 was to cancel out these seebeck voltages?


Is what I am seeing "normal behaviour", and if not what should be done to correct the problem?
