Abstract:

We report on the results of experiments to characterizing the performance of high quality crystal oscillators. The sensitivity of the crystals to temperature and humidity were investigated. This information was used to design hermetically sealed vessels to stabilize both temperature and humidity in an effort to improve the long term frequency stability of the crystals. Preliminary data from these tests are presented.
