Abstract:

Research was concerned with the factors underlying the short term stability of crystal oscillators. A discussion is presented of a technique for measuring the frequency of a source in a short time interval. Design criteria are presented and sources of error are analyzed. A set of curves useful in the design of the measuring system is given. An analysis is also given of the effects of noise on the frequency of a source. Models based on the work of S. O. Rice and J. S. Bendat are discussed and some typical results calculated. Contained in the report is an extensive bibliography on 1 frequency measurements, 2 frequency multipliers and dividers, 3 frequency standards and oscillators, 4 short time frequency stability, 5 piezoelectric parameters, 6 signal analysis, and 7 instantaneous frequency.
