Applications of Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard in Voltage Metrology



Yi-hua Tang


A new type of Josephson junction array using current biased voltage steps can provide highly stable and accurate voltages. The superior voltage stability of such a Josephson voltage standard has many applications in dc voltage metrology. This paper describes the working principle of the programmable Josephson voltage standard (PJVS) using this new array technology and few examples of its applications.
