2. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

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 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. ...

6. 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 ( ...

7. 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, ...

8. All-NbN Digital-to-Analog Converters for a Programmable Voltage Standard
Topic: Quantum Electrical Measurements
Published: 11/21/2001
Authors: Hirotake Yamamori, M. Itoh, H. Sasaki, A. Shoji, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus
Abstract: Five-bit all-NbN digital-to-analog converters (DACs) for a programmable voltage standard have been fabricated using NbN/TiNx/NbN Josephson junctions and their operation has been demonstrated. The DAC consists of six arrays of 128, 128, 256, 512, 1024 ...

9. 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 ...

10. 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 ...
