11. Flat frequency response in the electronic measurement of the Boltzmann constant
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Samuel Paul Benz, Yang Fu, Jianqiang Zhang, Horst Rogalla, Alessio Pollarolo
Abstract: A new quantum voltage calibrated Johnson noise thermometer (JNT) was developed at NIM to demonstrate the electrical approach that determines the Boltzmann constant k by comparing electrical and thermal noise power. A measurement with integration peri ...

12. Johnson Noise Thermometry Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant with a 200 Ohm Sense Resistor
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Tae H. Jeong, Samuel Paul Benz, Horst Rogalla
Abstract: In 2010 NIST measured the Boltzmann constant k by use of an electronic technique that measured the Johnson noise of a 100 Ohm resistor at the triple point of water (TPW). The NIST Johnson noise thermometry (JNT) system used as a reference a voltage ...

13. Method for Ensuring Accurate AC Waveforms with Programmable Josephson Voltage Standards
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Charles J Burroughs, Alain Rufenacht, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus
Abstract: The amplitudes of stepwise-approximated sine waves produced by programmable Josephson voltage standards (PJVSs) are not intrinsically accurate because the transitions between the quantized voltages depend on numerous conditions. We have developed a m ...

14. Quantum Calibration System for AC Measurement Standards using Inductive Voltage Dividers
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Thomas Hagen, Ilya Budovsky, Samuel Paul Benz, Charles J Burroughs
Abstract: A pulse driven ac Josephson voltage standard (ACJVS) has been set up at the National Measurement Institute, Australia (NMIA) with the help of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The ACJVS forms the basis of a high precision cal ...

15. An electronic measurement of the Boltzmann constant
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 3/30/2011
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Alessio Pollarolo, Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, Chiharu Urano, Weston Leo Tew, Paul David Dresselhaus, D. R White
Abstract: The Boltzmann constant was measured by comparing the Johnson noise of a resistor at the triple point of water with a quantum-based voltage reference signal generated with a superconducting Josephson-junction waveform synthesizer. The measured value ...

16. Reduced Nonlinearity Effect on the Electronic Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 1/10/2011
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Samuel Paul Benz, Alessio Pollarolo, Horst Rogalla
Abstract: NIST has developed a quantum voltage noise source (QVNS) calibrated Johnson noise thermometer (JNT) to provide a new electronic measurement technique for determining the Boltzmann constant. Improvements in electronics and synthesized noise waveforms ...

17. Development of a Four-channel System for Johnson Noise Thermometry
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 12/30/2010
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Chiharu Urano, Paul David Dresselhaus, Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: Long integration time is necessary to reach low uncertainty when measuring temperature through Johnson Noise Thermometry (JNT). The main goal of the NIST JNT experiment is to achieve a 6×10-6 relative uncertainty in the measurement of the water tripl ...

18. 10 Volt Programmable Josephson voltage standard circuits using NbSi-barrier junctions
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 10/28/2010
Authors: Paul David Dresselhaus, Mike Elsbury, David Inocencio Olaya, Charles J Burroughs, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: Programmable Josephson voltage standard (PJVS) circuits were developed that operate at 16 GHz to 20 GHz with operating margins larger than 1 mA. Two circuit designs were demonstrated each having a total of ~ 300,000 junctions, which were divided into ...

20. Electronic Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant with a Quantum-Voltage-Calibrated Johnson-Noise Thermometer
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 11/22/2009
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, D. R White, Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, Weston Leo Tew
Abstract: Currently, the CODATA value of the Boltzmann constant is dominated by a single gas-based-thermometry measurement with a relative uncertainty of 1.8 ձ0^-6. This paper describes an electronic approach to measuring the Boltzmann constant that comp ...
