|Title:||Proposal for Development of a National Microwave Brightness-Temperature Standard|
|Published:||September 01, 2006|
|Abstract:||We review the advantages of a national standard for microwave brightness temperature and outline our proposed approach toward developing such a standard. The proposal is a combined standard that would comprise both a standard radiometer, traceable to primary noise standards, and a fully characterized standard target. We also review our recent work on development of a standard radiometer and on characterization of calibration targets.|
