An error budget for the JPL hydrogen maser receiverThe hydrogen maser receiver is a synthesizer that converts the maser signal, at about 1420 MHz, to a set of output signals at 100, 20, 10, 5, 1, and 0.1 MHz. The contribution of the receiver and its component modules to the frequency instability and phase noise of each of its outputs is estimated, and these results are compared to published measurements of the 100-MHz output of the frequency standard, which consists of a maser plus its receiver. One can then assess how much the receiver degrades the performance of the frequency standard.
