1 Volt Josephson Fast Reversed DC Source



Charles J. Burroughs, Samuel Benz, Todd E. Harvey, H. Sasaki


We have made several improvements to the NIST Josephson FRDC (fast reversed dc) source so that it now operates at 1 Volt. We have made a precision comparison to a conventional semiconductor FRDC source by measuring the thermoelectric transfer difference of a known thermal voltage converter. The agreement between the two sources was measured to be better than 1 part in 10^u7.
