Using a High-Value Resistor in Single-Electron Counting Measurements



Randolph Elmquist, Neil M. Zimmerman, William Huber


An experiment using a high-value cryogenic resistor is proposed, with the aim of improving the experimental link between three quantum electrical standards. This technique is new in its approach and does not require feedback from either a voltage detector or a current detector. Performance is limited by fundamental resistor and SQUID detector noise.
