    We review past research on the propagation of electromagnetic pulse signals over the surface of the earth with emphasis on analytical methods to predict waveforms. The best example is the electromagnetic field radiated from a lightning stroke that can be observed at global distances or very close in if one has sufficient motivation. In any case, the propagation channel will distort the signal wave... View full abstract»

  • Dielectric properties of water and water/ethylene glycol mixtures for use in pulsed power system design

    One class of modern pulse power generators use deionized water as an energy storage, switching and transmission dielectric. Water is chosen for its high dielectric constant and relatively high resistivity, which allows reasonably sized and efficient low-impedance high-voltage pulse lines where pulse durations are less than 100 µs. Water/ethylene glycol mixtures are being researched, so that r... View full abstract»

    Telecommunications networks of the future will exploit two new network architecture concepts that are currently being implemented, or soon will be. These are the Intelligent Network and ISDN, the Integrated Services Digital Network, which together will support a full range of voice, data, and image services that Information Age telecommunications users will demand. These new network architectures,... View full abstract»

    The telephone network today is the result of many years growth. Technology has enabled this growth to occur, and simultaneously allowed a steady reduction in the real cost of service and an increase in the level of performance. Technology will continue to facilitate the economic growth of the network, and with the evolution to digital will enable a much larger variety of information to be carried.... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the authors present their views concerning what types of telecommunications services are likely to come into existence or become widespread during the next decade. The paper is organized in terms of fundamental customer needs which those services should help to satisfy. In particular, the following categories of needs are considered: i) Information Productivity, ii) Cost-Effectivene... View full abstract»

    This paper analyzes the effects of government regulation on the pricing and supply of telecommunications services in the United States. Among other things, it considers the effects of current economically inefficient pricing policies on bypass of the public switched telephone network and the widespread availability of low-cost telephone service, as well as the impact of the Bell System divestiture...

    There are significant differences in the fourth statistical moment of the electric field in a turbulent medium between coherent and incoherent waves. They affect the input conditions, the connection with the intensity correlation, the physical interpretation, and the direct measurement of the fourth moment. View full abstract»

  • The fractal random array

    A novel method of random array synthesis is presented. This new method relies on the application of the underlying self-similarity inherent in random fractals to the problem of antenna array theory. Several examples demonstrate the synthesis procedure and its usefulness in producing robust, low sidelobe arrays. View full abstract»

    A new method for improvement of the resolution of a laserbeam scanner is proposed. The principle would be effective for moving-mirror scanners such as polygon and galvanometer scanners. Furthermore, its application to the moving-mirror scanner driven by a piezoelectric transducer is investigated. View full abstract»

    The fast Hartley transform algorithm introduced in 1984 offers an alternative to the fast Fourier transform, with the advantages of not requiring complex arithmetic or a sign change of i to distinguish inverse transformation from direct. A two-dimensional extension is described that speeds up Fourier transformation of real digital images. View full abstract»

  • A new method for frequency-to-code conversion

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):1283 - 1284

    A Frequency-to-Code Converter (FCC) is presented in which a counter clock automatically slows down its pace as the interval between the last pulse and the next one exceeds some prededetermined value. This technique ("frequency-grading") allows building a simple broad-band (10-65 000-Hz) FCC with a 1-percent accuracy for frequencies higher than 50 Hz. View full abstract»

    Curtis et al. applied a theorem due to Bezout to show that almost all continuous, periodic, band-limited two-dimensional signals can be reconstructed from at most 4(N1+ N2)2zero-crossing samples where N1and N2is the number of Fourier coefficients in the signal. In this letter we prove a new version of Bezout's theorem and apply it to the above... View full abstract»

    Recently, a closed-form solution for the self-impedance of a conductor directly buried in the earth has been conjectured through analogy with other closed-form approximations for overhead conductors. This letter provides a mathematical development for the equation and extends the results to the more general case of a conductor contained in a dielectric tunnel deep within a medium of arbitrary rela...
