Selection and Use of Precise Frequency and Time Systems


image of Selection and Use of Precise Frequency and Time Systems

This Handbook consists of ten chapters which describe basic concepts, frequency and time sources, measurement techniques, characteristics of various frequency standards, operational experience, problems and future prospects. The contents include detailed explanations and many references that can be consulted for additional details.




The subjects of the Chapters in this Handbook are interdependent. Describing one topic without calling upon information from another is difficult. While the author of each chapter does not often refer explicitly to other chapters, the reader will no doubt find a need to do so. A key conclusion then is that the pursuit of work in one topic will probably require development of understanding of others. Consider the following examples of interdependence.
