A Multi-Frequency 4-Terminal-Pair AC Bridge



Anne-Marie Jeffery, John Q. Shields, Scott H. Shields


A 4-terminal-pair ac bridge, capable of a relative uncertainty of 2 x 10^-9^, has been constructed at NIST. The bridge is a multi-ratio bridge (10:1, 2:1 and 1:1) and operates in the range from 100 Hz to 2000 Hz. The design and initial testing of this bridge is described.
