LNF-VTL_WR22C is a precision cryogenic noise source with very high accuracy. It is based on a variable temperature waveguide
termination with a WR-22 port. The termination is made of a crystal quartz chip with a resistive film, a 50 Ohm heater resistor
and a precision temperature sensor. The chip is thermally isolated from the module and can thus be heated with minimal
influence on the waveguide block temperature. However, the chip is thermally connected to the incomming wiring. Therefore,
it is iperative that the incomming wires are properly grounded to the base temperature. The block has to be cooled down to 50
K or lower to ensure proper functionality. The temperature sensor is a Lakeshore DT-670A1 series which requires a suitable
temperature monitor to supply a constant current of 10 μA, to measure the voltage and display the corresponding temperature.
Typically, a temperature regulator is used to both monitor the temperature and regulate it by applying a voltage to the heater
resistor.
