Abstract

We have evaluated the correction factor of a WR-15 (50 to 75 GHz) rectangular waveguide calorimeter using four different techniques. The four methods are in agreement. Our initial uncertainty analysis indicates that the technique with the lowest uncertainty is one that utilized two identical calorimeter core sections back-to-back. This initial uncertainty is smaller than expected which will require us to re-evaluate uncertainty contributions that were neglected.
