    This paper describes an inexpensive ($2000) integrated optics laboratory used for teaching and research. It lists and specifies the basic materials needed to fabricate optical waveguides and make guide measurements. Several methods of fabricating optical waveguides are discussed, and the dipping method using glass substrates and a polystyrene solution is favored. Polystyrene waveguides are used to...

    The two-photomask process for the fabrication of p-channel MOS devices provides a full introduction to the fundamental planar process. A 1000 A double layer insulator fim of silicon dioxide (700 Å) and silicon nitride (300 Å) is used for the gate and field regions of the devices. Using chemical vapor deposited boron nitride as the boron diffusion source eliminates the usual photo-process steps f... View full abstract»

    The effect on system performance of variation of the values of component parts is a topic which should be included in the undergraduate engineering curriculum. Two subroutines are presented in this paper which simplify the problem so that meaningful problems can be solved by the sophomore or junior engineering student. Values for system components are selected according to a probability density fu... View full abstract»

    There is a great educational value in solving a particular problem which relates the characteristics and parameter values of a machine to its size. By multiplying each linear dimension of a machine by a certain factor, its size is changed. The example used is a transformer, but the similarity to other devices is noted. The quantitative relations between size and characteristics are shown in the ex... View full abstract»
