1. Amplifier Noise Measurements at NIST
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 4/1/1997
Authors: D. F. Wait, James Paul Randa
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=15902

2. Analysis for Dynamic Metrology
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 1/30/2014
Authors: Andrew M Dienstfrey, Paul D Hale
Abstract: Diverse measurement contexts require estimates of time varying quantities. Ideally the measurement device responds to signal variations significantly more rapidly than the modulation of the signal itself. If so, then well-developed techniques may b ...

3. Colored Noise and Regularization Parameter Selection for Waveform Metrology
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 7/8/2014
Authors: Andrew M Dienstfrey, Paul D Hale
Abstract: We study six regularization parameter selection algorithms applied to deconvolution problems relevant for characterization of high-speed communication measurement systems. In particular we investigate the performance of these selectors in the presen ...

4. Comparison of Microwave Black-Body Target Radiometric Measurements
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 7/30/2010
Authors: David K Walker, Dazhen Gu, Katherine MacReynolds, Randy Direen, James Paul Randa, Amanda Cox, Derek Anderson Houtz, Robert L. Billinger
Abstract: Accurate characterization of the brightness temperature (T_B) of black-body targets used for calibrating microwave remote-sensing radiometers includes many inputs: antenna pattern and loss, target temperature, target emissivity, mechanical alignment, ...

5. Dielectric characterization by microwave cavity perturbation corrected for non-uniform fields
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Nathan D Orloff, Jan Obrzut, Christian John Long, Thomas F. Lam, James C Booth, David R Novotny, James Alexander Liddle, Pavel Kabos
Abstract: The non-uniform fields that occur due to the slot in the cavity through which the sample is inserted and those due to the sample geometry itself decrease the accuracy of dielectric characterization by cavity perturbation at microwave frequencies. ...

6. NFRad: Review of the New NIST Noise Measurement System
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 6/1/2000
Authors: Chriss A. Grosvenor, James Paul Randa, Robert L. Billinger
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=21667

7. NIST's High Frequency Metrology Program: Current Capabilities and Future Directions
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 3/31/2011
Author: Ronald A Ginley
Abstract: There are several core areas that are covered by the NIST microwave metrology services. These include thermal noise, power, scattering-parameters (s-parameters), field strength and antenna parameters. The rapid change in technology and the current ec ...

8. Noise-Source Stability Measurements
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 5/1/2000
Authors: James Paul Randa, L. A. Terrell, Lawrence P. Dunleavy
Abstract: We report results of stability tests on several noise sources for selected frequencies between 12 and 26.5 GHz. Measurements covered intervals of about 1 week and about 1 year or more. Drifts in noise temperature were typically less than the uncert ...

9. Noise-Temperature Measurement System for the WR-28 Band
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1395
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 8/1/1997
Authors: James Paul Randa, L. A. Terrell
Abstract: The NIST Noise Project has constructed and tested a radiometer for the measurement of noise sources in the WR-28 waveguide band (26.5 GHz to 40 GHz). It is a total-power radiometer which incorporates a six-port reflectometer for the measurement of r ...

10. REFLECTIVITY STUDIES OF PASSIVE MICROWAVE CALIBRATION TARGETS AND ABSORPTIVE MATERIALS
Topic: Microwave Measurement Services
Published: 7/30/2010
Authors: Dazhen Gu, Amanda Cox, Derek Anderson Houtz, David K Walker, James Paul Randa, Robert L. Billinger
Abstract: We report the characterization of blackbody reflections as a part of the recent progress on the development of brightness standards for microwave remote sensing at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).Three blackbody targets at varia ...
