1. Cryocooled 10 V Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 12/11/2014
Authors: Alain Rufenacht, Logan A. Howe, Anna E Fox, Robert E Schwall, Paul David Dresselhaus, Charles J Burroughs, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: Implementation of programmable Josephson voltage standard (PJVS) circuits on cryocooler at 4 K is a challenge. The limited cooling power of the cryocoolers has to balance the heat dissipated by the PJVS circuit in order to maintain a stable tempe ...

2. Performance Improvements for the NIST 1 V Josephson arbitrary waveform synthesizer
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 11/10/2014
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Steven Beyer Waltman, Anna E Fox, Paul David Dresselhaus, Alain Rufenacht, Logan A. Howe, Robert E Schwall, Nathan E Flowers-Jacobs
Abstract: The performance of the NIST Josephson arbitrary waveform synthesizer has been improved such that it generates a root-mean-square (RMS) output voltage of 1 V with an operating current range greater than 2 mA. Our previous 1 V JAWS circuit achieved ...

3. NIST 10 V Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard System Using a Low Capacity Cryocooler
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 11/6/2014
Authors: Logan A. Howe, Anna E Fox, Alain Rufenacht, Charles J Burroughs, Paul David Dresselhaus, Samuel Paul Benz, Robert E Schwall
Abstract: Rising costs of and difficulty in obtaining liquid helium in many areas of the world provides strong motivation for cryogen-free operation of superconducting devices such as NIST Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard (PJVS) systems. However, op ...

4. A 100 Tohm Guarded Hamon Transfer Standard
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Dean G Jarrett, Edward O'Brien, Marlin E Kraft
Abstract: Guarded Hamon transfer standards are used at NIST for scaling to high resistance levels. An improved design for a guarded Hamon transfer standard in the range from 1 TΩ to 100 TΩ is described. Measurements taken to select the primary and g ...

5. AC-DC Transfer Standard Measurements with a Josephson Arbitrary Waveform Synthesizer at 200 mV
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Jason M Underwood, Alain Rufenacht, Steven Beyer Waltman, Charles J Burroughs, Paul David Dresselhaus, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: Thermal voltage converters and transfer standards are critical components in AC electrical metrology. In order to improve the low-voltage (< 1 V) calibration of such transfer standards at NIST, we have developed an AC Josephson voltage standard ( ...

6. Investigations on the measurement of the leakage resistance to ground of a NIST Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Stephane Solve, Regis Chayramy, Alain Rufenacht, Charles J Burroughs, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: The Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard (PJVS) leakage resistance to ground (LRG) is defined as the electrical resistance of one side of the measurement leads to ground. Under certain measurement conditions, this resistance can produce a sign ...

7. Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant with Noise Thermometry at NIM
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Kunli Zhou, Horst Rogalla, Samuel Paul Benz, Yunfeng Fu
Abstract: Since 2010 we have been developing a quantum-voltage-calibrated Johnson noise thermometer at NIM to measure the Boltzmann constant k. With recent improvements in grounding and shielding of the electronics, and matching of the noise sources and t ...

8. Systematic Error Resolved in NIST Johnson Noise Thermometer
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Weston Leo Tew, Horst Rogalla, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: In the Johnson Noise Thermometry approach, Boltzmann‰s constant k is obtained as the ratio of the noise power measured across a sense resistor at the triple point of water and the noise power measured for a synthesized reference waveform. The ref ...

9. Absorptive Limiter for Frequency Selective Circuits
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/1/2014
Authors: Juan C. Collado Gomez, Eduard Rocas, James C Booth, Jordi Mateu, J. M. O'Callaghan, J. Verdu, A. Hueltes
Abstract: This paper describes a novel absorptive limiter for frequency selective circuits. The proposed circuit allows the design of absorptive limiters based on a bi-state phase shifter, which is appropriate for integration into channelizing devices, ...

Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 9/11/2013
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Samuel Paul Benz, Jianqiang Zhang, Horst Rogalla, Yang Fu, Alessio Pollarolo, Jintao Zhang
Abstract: A quantum-voltage-calibrated Johnson-noise thermometer was developed at NIM, which measures the Boltzmann constant k through comparing the thermal noise across a 100  sense resistor at the temperature of the triple point water to the comb-lik ...
