The noise-power spectrum from 0.01 to 10−4 Hz is measured using a progressive bandwidth-measuring method. The 1/f law is verified, and it is found that flicker noise may be represented in the common-emitter configuration by an input current generator iB given in terms of current collector Ie and current gain β by iB2̅ = CΔf/fIe3/22
