A Program to Analyse the Origin of Noise in Ultra-Stable Quartz Crystal Resonators

Abstract

In the mid 90s the quartz crystal oscillator attained a stability in the upper 10<sup>-14</sup> (flicker floor of the Allan deviation sigma<sub>y</sub>(tau), which occurs at tau=1..10 s). As a matter of fact, the highest stability was obtained with bulk-acoustic-wave quartz crystal resonators at 5 MHz and at 10 MHz. Since, the research for higher stability… (More)
