Abstract

Sampling is a promising technique to compare the stepwise-approximated sine waves synthesized by an AC Programmable Josephson Voltage Standard to the sinusoidal voltages of a secondary source at low frequencies (a few hundred Hz or less). This paper describes a differential method that uses an integrating sampling voltmeter to precisely determine the amplitude and phase of high purity sine wave voltages by comparing them with quantum-accurate waveforms.
