A system for modulating a magnetic field sensor device comprising: a base; a magnetic sensor comprising a plurality of magnetic components; at least one coil for creating a magnetic field around the magnetic sensor; the at least one coil adapted to be connected to an alternating current source that passes through the coil to modulate the magnetic field at the magnetic sensor and drive at least one of the magnetic components of the magnetic sensor into and out of its region of increased magnetic response while shifting the frequency of the magnetic field that is sensed by the magnetic sensors a
A method for identifying the modulation scheme of a software defined radio in real-time without pilot symbols between transmitters and receivers, includes providing a predetermined look-up table (LUT) in the software-defined radio wherein the LUT is prepared by pre-calculating discrete likelihood ratio test (DLRT) function values; storing the pre-calculated DLRT values in said LUT; and indexing the pre-calculated DLRT values by addresses.
A method and system for processing analog optical signals to produce a single RF output free from even-order harmonic distortion. Two analog optical signals of different wavelengths _1, _2 are input into a dual-output Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM), where one wavelength input is high-biased and one wavelength is low-biased. The complementary high- and low-biased wavelengths are output from each arm of the MZM to a multiplexer, which filters out the unwanted high- or low-biased wavelengths from each MZM arm so that both wavelengths are low-biased or high-biased.
Populations of quantum dots are combined with quantities of a modulator of photoluminescence to produce a plurality of optical barcodes having at least two distinguishable colors arising from varying quantities of a modulator of photoluminescence bound to the populations of quantum dots.
A method and apparatus for establishing more uniform deposition across one or more faces of a workpiece in an electroplating process. The apparatus employs eductors in conjunction with a flow dampener member and other measures to provide a more uniform current distribution and a more uniform metal deposit distribution as reflected in a coefficient of variability that is lower than conventional processes.
Disclosed herein is a method to produce a semi-crystalline fluoro-polymer film. A semi-crystalline fluoro-polymer material is used. The material is compressed to produce the film. During compression, the material is maintained at a temperature below the melting point of the material. The compression step can be cycled to allow cooling of the material between compression stages. Alternative methods are provided for compressing the material with a co-extrusion substrate, extruding the material and utilizing mandrel expansion for the material.
The invention as disclosed is a parallel plate antenna having a number of stacked horizontal plates and two vertical plates. Alternating ones of the horizontal plates are electrically coupled to one vertical plate such that the horizontal plates coupled to one vertical plate are interleaved with the horizontal plates coupled to the other vertical plate. The assembled antenna is mounted on a planar mounting flange. The height/width of the antenna is approximately 1/30th of a wavelength at the frequency of operation.
A transducer array assembly includes a support structure having a plurality of predetermined openings therein for accommodating transducer components. Flexible circuits are embedded in the support structure. Each flexible circuit has first ends being positioned in the support structure predetermined openings. Terminal blocks are joined to the second ends. Transducer elements are positioned in the support structure predetermined openings and placed in electrical communication with the flexible circuit first ends.
A millimeter wave transmission line filter having a plurality of filter pole determining coupled cavities fabricated with a multiple lithographic layer micromachining process. The filter cavities are oriented perpendicular to an underlying substrate element in order to achieve micromachining, fabrication and accuracy advantages. Multiple filters can be used in a frequency multiplex arrangement as in a duplexer. Radio frequencies in the 15 to 300 gigahertz range are contemplated.
