Superconducting Devices for Metrology and Standards

  • Robert A. Kamper
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 21)

Abstract

This topic falls naturally into five almost independent parts:
  1. a)

    Voltage standards,

     
  2. b)

    Current comparators and measurements of ratios of current and voltage,

     
  3. c)

    Measurements of rf power and attenuation,

     
  4. d)

    Noise thermometry, and

     
  5. e)

    e) Measurements of frequency.

     
These are discussed in Sections II to VI respectively. General familiarity with the properties of superconductors and the Josephson effect is assumed; these topics are discussed in detail in other parts of these proceedings.

Keywords
