Title: Design of the NIST 10V programmable Josephson voltage standard system
Published: January 13, 2011
Abstract: NIST has developed and implemented a new Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard (PJVS) that operates at 10 V. This next-generation system is optimized for both dc metrology and stepwise-approximated ac voltage measurements for frequencies up to a few hundred hertz. The non-hysteretic Josephson junctions produce intrinsically stable voltages and are designed to operate in the 18-20 GHz frequency range. The most recent 10 V PJVS circuits have produced intrinsically stable voltages with combined current ranges greater than 1 mA.
