Abstract

A new microwave cavity assembly has been designed and fabricated for use in the primary frequency standards at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). We will describe the design of the cavity and present results from the manufacturing process. We will also present results from an initial study of the frequency bias due to the distributed cavity phase shift for this cavity design. The new cavity will be installed in NIST-F1.
