21. Reduced Nonlinearities and Improved Temperature Measurements for the NIST Johnson Noise Thermometer
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 7/31/2009
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Samuel Paul Benz, Horst Rogalla, D. R White
Abstract: The variance of temperature measurements made with the NIST Johnson noise thermometer has been reduced by use of improved cross-correlation electronics and a unique method for measuring and reducing nonlinearities. The spectral response of the voltag ...

22. Nonlinear Behavior of Electronic Components Characterized with Precision Multitones from a Josephson Arbitrary Waveform Synthesizer
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/3/2009
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Ryan C. Toonen
Abstract: We have extended the application of quantum-based electrical standards from single frequency calibrations to multi-tone tests that can be used to characterize the nonlinear behavior of electronic components and circuits. Specifically, we have used a ...

23. Application of the Josephson effect in electrical metrology
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, B. Jeanneret
Abstract: Over the last 30 years, metrology laboratories have used the quantum behavior of the Josephson effect to greatly improve voltage metrology. The following article reviews the history and present status of the research and development Josephson voltage ...

24. Operating Margins for a Pulse-Driven Josephson Arbitrary Waveform Synthesizer Using a Ternary Bit-Stream Generator
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 4/1/2009
Authors: Ernest Houtzager, Samuel Paul Benz, Helko vanden Brom
Abstract: We describe measurements with a pulse-driven Josephson arbitrary waveform synthesizer (JAWS) that uses a ternary arbitrary bit-stream generator as the bias source. This system is meant to be used as an AC Josephson voltage standard (ACJVS). From thes ...

25. Ultra-high resolution alpha particle spectroscopy using calorimetry
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 9/23/2008
Authors: Robert Daniel Horansky, Joel Nathan Ullom, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Don Dry, Beth Hastings, Stephen Lamont, Clifford R Rudy, Michael W Rabin
Abstract: Calorimetry has been used since the late 1700?s to measure the heat output of physical processes ranging from chemical reactions to the respiration of organisms . Calorimetry is performed by measuring the temperature change caused by heat release int ...

26. Improvements in the NIST Johnson Noise Thermometry System
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/9/2008
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Horst Rogalla, Rod White, Jifeng Qu, Paul David Dresselhaus, Wes L Tew, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We have developed a Johnson noise thermometry system that is calibrated by precision waveforms synthesized with a quantum-accurate voltage noise source (QVNS). Significant improvements to the QVNS and the cross-correlation measurement electronics hav ...

27. Precision Differential Sampling Measurements of Low-Frequency Voltages Synthesized with an AC Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/9/2008
Authors: Alain Rufenacht, Charles J Burroughs, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus, Bryan C Waltrip, Thomas L Nelson
Abstract: Sampling is a promising technique to compare the stepwise-approximated sine waves synthesized by an AC Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard to the sinusoidal voltages of a secondary source at low frequencies (a few hundred Hz or less). This paper ...

28. AC-DC Transfer Standard Measurements and Generalized Compensation with the AC Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 4/1/2008
Authors: Oliver F kieler, Regis Landim, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus, Charles J Burroughs
Abstract: This paper presents ac-dc transfer standard measurements using the NIST pulse-driven ac Josephson voltage standard source. We have investigated the frequency dependence for several output voltages up to 200 mV for frequencies from 2.5 kHz to 100 kHz. ...

29. Systematic Error Analysis of Stepwise Approximated AC Waveforms Generated by a Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/22/2007
Authors: Charles J Burroughs, Alain Rufenacht, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus
Abstract: We have measured stepwise-approximated sinewaves generated by a Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard with several different output configurations. These data are analyzed to characterize the dominant error mechanisms for rms applications, such as ...

30. Application of the Josephson Effect to Metrology
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 10/1/2004
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Clark Hamilton
Abstract: The unique ability of a Josephson junction to control the flow of magnetic flux quanta leads to a perfect relationship between frequency and voltage. Over the last 30 years, metrology laboratories have used this effect to greatly improve the accura ...
