1 A and 120 mA Thin-Film Multijunction Thermal Converters



H. Laiz, Thomas F. Wunsch, Joseph R. Kinard Jr., Thomas E. Lipe Jr.


We report on the development of thin-film multijunction thermal converters for the measurement of ac current. The materials and designs chosen for these devices have been optimized to provide high accuracy over a wide range of input levels and frequencies. The design details of the MJTCs will be presented, and their performance described.
