Archita Hati, Craig W. Nelson, David A. Howe

Abstract

We discuss collapse of the cross-spectrum phase noise measurement of thermally-limited oscillator due to anti-correlated thermal noise of the Wilkinson power splitter. We also examine effect of thermal noise of various resistive power splitters on such noise measurements.
