Abstract : A method and system for absolute measurement of noise power is described. The method is valid at all radio frequencies but is particularly useful above 65 GHz where no other means for making such measurements currently exists. A gas driven shock tube is provided as a primary laboratory standard of high temperature and, hence, noise power. A system and method for comparing a noise source under test to the primary standard in order to provide an absolute measurement of noise power generated by the test source are described. (Author)
