objectives:
In a conventional noise measurement the detector is connected remotely to the source of the fluctuations, which makes it difficult to achieve reliable measurements at high (> 1 GHz) frequencies. On the contrary, using an on-chip noise detector, high frequencies are naturally available. Yet there is a caveat: in an on-chip detection scheme it is more difficult to distinguish the properties of the noise source from those of a tiny near-by detector. In this project methods of direct on-chip detection of noise are developed and discussed.
achievements:
Richard Deblock and Helene Bouchiat participated in the ULTI meeting in April 2006. The project planning was initiated and different realizations of on-chip detection of high frequency noise, utilizing the knowledge of both the Paris and the Helsinki groups.
