Cross-spectral Collapse from Anti-correlated Thermal Noise in Power Splitters

Published

Author(s)

Craig Nelson, Archita Hati, David A. Howe

Abstract

We discuss the cross-spectral collapse due to anti-correlated thermal noise that originates from the common-mode power divider (splitter) in a cross-spectrum noise measurement system. We studied this effect for different power splitters and discuss its influence on the measurement of thermal-noise limited oscillators.
