Abstract

A near-ambient, variable-temperature noise standard whose physical temperature can be accurately measured was constructed and then measured with the NIST total-power radiometer to test the accuracy of radiometer measurements in the temperature range of 263 K-325 K over the frequency range 8-12 GHz.
