Spatial variations of field polarization and phase in microwave cavities: application to the cesium fountain cavity
Wall losses in microwave cavities will generate a phase difference between the components of the field, and give rise to spatial phase variations which are related to the geometry of complicatedExpand

Square wave frequency modulation as a mean to reduce the effect of local oscillator instabilities in alkali vapor passive frequency standards
A quick review is given of mechanisms that can transfer local oscillator instabilities onto the output frequency of an atomic frequency standard, with the possible result of representing a limitationExpand

Effects of Servo Loop Modulation in Atomic Beam Frequency Standards Employing a Ramsey Cavity
Some kind of modulation needs to be imposed on the mi- crowave signal to acquire lock in all passive atomic frequency stan- dards. In this way a frequency-discriminating dc signal is obtained byExpand

Virtues and problems of the high C-field Cs beam frequency standard
The high C-field Cs beam frequency standard is presently a working machine that is undergoing first evaluations. The projected 10/sup -14/ accuracy goal is as yet unattained, mainly because ofExpand

A simple analysis of the Dick effect in terms of phase noise spectral densities
In cold-atom frequency standards based on the Ramsey double interaction method, the phase noise of the interrogating signal appears as a random "end-to-end phase difference", thereby introducingExpand

The elusive half-pole in the frequency domain transfer function of Peltier thermoelectric devices.
A half-pole can be expected in the transfer function of a Peltier device because proportionality between the diffusion length and the square root of the diffusion time is intrinsic in the diffusionExpand

An accurate new method to measure the dimensionless figure of merit of thermoelectric devices based on the complex impedance porcupine diagram.
The heat diffusion related f(-1/2) slow decay in the frequency domain transfer function of thermoelectric devices introduces a bias in figure of merit measurement methods that do not take it intoExpand

Spectral Analysis of Synthesized Signals in the mm Wavelength Region
In this paper some experimental results on the spectral purity along a multiplier chain from 5 MHz up to 600 GHz are reported. The measured points are compared to the numerical data which can beExpand

Frequency stability of cell-based passive frequency standards: reducing the effects of local-oscillator PM noise
Experimental measurements in our present diode-laser-pumped Rb buffer-gas-cell frequency standard show that the sensitivity to microwave PM noise is approximately a factor of 10 lower whenExpand

Phase-coherent synthesis and precision frequency measurements in the far infrared
A short review of the basic concepts and problems in frequency multiplication into the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum is given. Results obtained with a multiplier chain starting fromExpand
