Abstract

We use traceable swept-sine and electrooptic-sampling-system-based-sampling-oscilloscope calibrations to measure the systematic error of the nose-to-nose calibration, and compare the results to simulations. Our results show that the errors in the nose-to-nose calibration are small at low frequencies, but significant at high frequencies.
