Lecture EDM Theory Lecture Notes Text Coverage: same as other lecture outline How an EDM works: Carrier wavelength: Modulation Frequency: Modulation Wavelength: Speed of light in a vacuum: Speed of light in air: Basic formula for distance: 1 1 2 a N D m + = λ Systematic Errors in EDM work: A. Constant Errors 1. Glass (prism) constant. (GC) all expressed as corrections 2. Instrument Offset constant (IOC) 3. Total Offset constant (TOC) B. Scale Errors 4. Frequency count errors 5. PPM correction a. Standard atmosphere b. Formula for the refractive index: Given: Wavelength modulation frequency, f 0 = 14985.4 kHz Wavelength of infrared carrier beam, λ 1 = 0.900 μ m Modulation Wavelength, λ 0 = 20 m Velocity of light in a vacuum, V 0 = 299,792.458 km/sec Observe the Following at Time of Observations: p = Atmospheric pressure (Use average of 762.0 mmHg) t = Air temperature, ° C 1. Calculate the refractive index of air under standard conditions, n g : 2. Calculate the refractive index of air under the condition at time of observation, n a : (Eq. 1-4) 3.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
