    Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) refers to the extraction of energy from fusion reactions ignited in small fuel pellets by the deposition of energy at extremely high power. The pellets of thermonuclear fuel, nominally deuterium and tritium, are compressed to densities on the order of one thousand times liquid density before the center reaches ignition temperature and burn propagates outward. Each... View full abstract»

  • Lateral electromagnetic waves along plane boundaries: A summarizing approach

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):595 - 611

    Lateral electromagnetic waves along a plane boundary between homogeneous half-spaces are reviewed. The electromagnetic fields generated by vertical and horizontal electric dipoles near the boundary between air and the earth (salt or fresh water, soil, ice, etc.) are summarized in terms of a new unified theory of lateral-wave propagation. Complete theoretically determined fields are displayed and c... View full abstract»

  • Transoceanic radio communication

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):626 - 633

    The paper defines the state of the art of today which is the result of developments during the war. Transatlantic radio communication is at present maintained by five first class stations, two in America and three in Europe. These stations operate at wave lengths between 12,500 and 17,000 meters. The range of wave lengths suited for such traffic is rather limited, the desirable wave length being i... View full abstract»

    Part I of this paper is devoted to a description of various experiments performed at wavelengths below 200 cm. Curves are given to show the effect of the earth and various types of inductively excited antennas called "wave directors." Part I is concluded with a discussion of beam and horizontally polarized radiation. Part II is devoted chiefly to the magnetron tubes used for the production of very... View full abstract»

  • Energy function and the synthesis of two-variable lossless n-ports

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):647 - 648
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (197 KB)

    Energy functions may be most profitably employed for deriving basic information about multivariable system functions, their analysis and synthesis. A synthesis of two-variable homogeneous n-ports is given in a concise manner via energy functions. The method is of a fundamental nature which circumvents some of the detailed and complicated existing procedures. View full abstract»

  • Programmable switched-capacitor filter with no additional silicon area

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):648 - 650
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (247 KB)

    This letter reports a simple and economic method of programming the frequency-response parameters of the switched-capacitor double-integrator biquad. It is shown that along with the programming facility, the scheme yields considerable reduction in the capacitor spread and hence in silicon area. View full abstract»

  • A nonlinear programming approach to the design of cascade compensators for linear control systems

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):650 - 652
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (262 KB)

    The problem of designing cascade compensators for linear control systems is formulated as a nonlinear programming problem. This formulation allows the design to be done by computer and replaces trial-and-error graphical-design methods. An example is given. View full abstract»

    Devices and components are subjected to stresses of certain types which the device must withstand to maintain proper operation. The applied stress and the withstand capability of a device are typically random quantities with associated probability distributions which can have arbitrary shapes. Previous workers approximated these distributions by standard shapes, for example, normal or Weibull, to ... View full abstract»
