Abstract

The design and construction of a noise thermometer built around two commercially available SQUID systems is presented. The thermometer is based upon the direct-coupled system of Webb, Gifford and Wheatley but uses a novel digital squarer/integrator to analyse the noise voltage. Preliminary results demonstrate the performance of the thermometer.
