SCMUA - Scattering Coefficient Measurement and uncertainty Analysis

Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) are used to measure reflection and transmission coefficients of multi-port networks at radio, microwave and millimeter-wave frequencies from a few kHz to 110 GHz and beyond. This working group will develop standards to provide a common base for analysis of measurements made on vector network analyzers and definitions of terms commonly used by users and manufacturers of vector network analyzers. Here are the objectives. 1. Define and describe measurement techniques, measurement errors, and the use of standards to quantify the effects of these errors; 2. Assist users to specify, and manufacturers to meaningfully describe essential performance parameters; 3. Assist users to verify the specified performance parameters with proven test methods and well defined standards; 4. Provide users with examples to evaluate and express the uncertainty of measurements made using VNAs.
