Establishing an ac Josephson voltage standard at NRC



Piotr S. Filipski, M. Boecker, Samuel Benz, Charles J. Burroughs


NRC recently established an AC Josephson Voltage Standard (ACJVS) system based on a NIST pulse-driven Josephson-junction array. This paper describes the efforts undertaken at NRC and the experience that was gained. An experimental method of measuring corrections due to the probe leads is described and first results are reported.
