Author(s)
Gordon A. Shaw, Julian Stirling, John A. Kramar, Alexander D. Moses, Patrick J. Abbott, Richard L. Steiner, Andrew D. Koffman, Jon R. Pratt, Zeina J. Kubarych
Although mass is typically defined within the International System of Units (SI) at the Kilogram level, the pending redefinition of the SI provides an

Josephson-Based Full Digital Bridge for High-Accuracy Impedance Comparisons

Author(s)
Frederic Overney, Nathan E. Flowers-Jacobs, Blaise Jeanneret, Alain Rufenacht, Anna E. Fox, Jason M. Underwood, Andrew D. Koffman, Samuel P. Benz
This paper describes a Josephson-based impedance bridge capable of comparing any types of impedance over a large bandwidth. The heart of the bridge is a dual AC
