1. Development of a Quantum-Voltage-Calibrated Noise Thermometer at NIM
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 ...

2. Johnson-noise thermometry based on a quantized-voltage noise source at NIST
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 9/11/2013
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Tae H. Jeong, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus, Horst Rogalla, Weston Leo Tew
Abstract: Johnson Noise Thermometry is an electronic approach to measuring temperature. For several years, NIST has been developing a switching-correlator-type Johnson-noise thermometer that uses a quantized voltage noise source as an accurate voltage referenc ...

3. Direct Comparison of two NIST PJVS systems at 10 V
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 8/27/2013
Authors: Stephane Solve, Alain Rufenacht, Charles J Burroughs, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: Two NIST Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard (PJVS) systems have been directly compared at 10V using different nanovoltmeters at the temperature of the laboratory. These PJVS systems use arrays double-stacked superconducting-niobium Josephson ...

4. Differential sampling measurement of a 7 V rms Sine Wave with a Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Alain Rufenacht, Charles J Burroughs, Paul David Dresselhaus, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: A 10 V programmable Josephson voltage standard has enabled sine waves with voltages up to 7 V rms to be accurately measured with a differential sampling measurement technique. Expanding the voltage range for this technique enables direct calibration ...

5. Flat Frequency Response in the Electronic Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, Yang Fu, Jianqiang Zhang, Alessio Pollarolo, Samuel Paul Benz
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 an integration p ...

6. Johnson Noise Thermometry Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant with a 200 Ohm Sense Resistor
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Tae H. Jeong, Samuel Paul Benz, Horst Rogalla
Abstract: In 2010, NIST measured the Boltzmann constant k with an electronic technique that measured the Johnson noise of a 100 Ω resistor at the triple point of water (TPW) and used a voltage waveform synthesized with a quantized voltage noise source (QV ...

7. Method for Ensuring Accurate AC Waveforms with Programmable Josephson Voltage Standards
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Charles J Burroughs, Alain Rufenacht, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus
Abstract: The amplitudes of stepwise-approximated sine waves generated by programmable Josephson voltage standards (PJVS) are not intrinsically accurate because the transitions between the quantized voltages depend on numerous conditions. We have developed a m ...

8. A 10 V programmable Josephson voltage standard and its applications for voltage metrology
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 9/3/2012
Authors: Yi-hua Tang, Vijay Ojha, Stephan Schlamminger, Alain Rufenacht, Charles J Burroughs, Paul David Dresselhaus, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: The concept of a programmable Josephson voltage standard was first proposed in 1997. Since then a significant amount of research and development work has been devoted to the fabrication of the programmable Josephson junction array and its deployment ...

9. A Digital-to-Analog Converter with a Voltage Standard Reference
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Alain Rufenacht, Charles J Burroughs, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus
Abstract: Commercially available 20-bit digital to analog converters (DACs) have the potential to impact the field of low frequency voltage metrology. We measured a linearity of ±6 µV (±0.6 µV/V full scale) over the 10 V range for such a DAC with a Zener volta ...
