Study and realization of RF and microwave power standards and related measuring instruments.
BNM/LCIE realized for its own use microcalorimeters and measuring instruments such as transfer standards, bolometric bridge and temperature controlled bolometer mounts in the frequency band between 1 MHz and 100 GHz.
It proposes to study:
1) the improvement of the microcalorimeters (mechanical caracteristics, thin wall waveguide and coaxial line).
2) the improvement of the bolometric bridge by adding a digital output (IEEE 488).
3) the realization of power transfer standards.
These equipments could be realized for interested laboratory.
