Bias Corrections in Primary Frequency Standards

Published

Author(s)

Steven R. Jefferts, F Levi

Abstract

Corrections to Primary Frequency Standards (PFS) or Secondary Frequency Standards (SFS) for offsets caused by various physical phenomena, e.g. Zeeman shifts or Blackbody radiation shifts, are typically corrected using formulae that contain “known” constants. They actual value of these “known” constants often changes over time as new, possibly more precise, measurements are made of the effect. The determination of “best” values for these constants is the subject of this work.
