Abstract:

The thermal properties of a crystal resonator are rapidly and inexpensively measured by first immersing the resonator into an ice water bath at 0 C and monitoring the frequency of the resonator until the frequency of the resonator is no longer changing then rapidly immersing the resonator into a boiling water bath at 100 C and monitoring the frequency versus time characteristics of the resonator at least until the frequency of the resonator is no longer changing repeating the above cycle, and determining the thermal properties of the crystal resonator from the frequency versus time characteristic.
