For the highest possible ‘Q’ factor, the Cold Weld (CW) packages should be specified. The ‘Q’ factor is a measurement of the loss of energy within the quartz. This is effected by the quality of the blank, surface finish (lapping), mounting technique and sealing. The maximum attainable short term stability of a crystal also depends on the ‘Q’ value.
