  • An Acoustooptic FM Receiver Demonstrating Some Principles of Modern Signal Processing

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):11 - 17
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (5569 KB)

    An acoustooptic FM receiver can be constructed by using a Bragg sound cell plus some simple optics and electronics. This application has significant pedagogical value because, in spite of the simplicity of implementation, it demonstrates a wide variety of physical and electrical principles applicable to modern signal processing. In this paper, we include a tutorial on the principles of acoustoopti... View full abstract»

    A presentation of the moified inodal anaysis (MNA) is made to students in an undergraduate course on circuit theory. This presentation improves students' understanding of the basic concepts of analysis and familiarizes them with the nature of techniques implementable on the computer. In addition, students are introduced to the basic theorems of circuit theory through the unifying framework of MNA. View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (13)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2034 KB)

    Several enhancements to FINEL, a student-oriented finite element program for electrostatic potential problems, and PLOTR, an associated plotting program, are described. These include incorporation of specified charge density within the solution region, specification of material regions with differing relative permittivities, "ballooning" for description of open boundary conditions, energy storage ...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (746 KB)

    The procedure and background for an experiment on the design of microwave microstrip circuits are presented. An effort is made to keep the experiment simple and the costs to a minimum so that the experiment can be easily implemented using the facilities of a school. The circuits are fabricated using a copper-tape construction method. The experiment is intended for a senior-level course. View full abstract»

    In two National Engineering Career Development Surveys, engineering students (N = 960) and graduates (N = 2401) were found to be quite similar in their ratings of the relative importance of various factors which influenced them to pursue careers in engineering. Work-related factors (especially challenge, creativity, independence, problem solving, and salary) were found to be most important followe... View full abstract»

  • Analytical Bode Design of Controllers

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):43 - 44

    This paper extends an approach for the analytical design of controllers by frequency-response techniques to include the dc gain as a design parameter. Additionally, the technique is extended to the design of proportional-integral (PI) and proportional-derivative (PD) controllers, and a more direct proof of the design technique is given.

  • Linear Feedback Models for Polarization and Magnetization

    Publication Year: 1985, Page(s):44 - 46
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (683 KB)

    Linear feedback models for polarization and magnetization effects in dielectric and magnetic materials are introduced. They provide a direct translation of phenomena at the atomic level (e.g., electric dipoles and magnetic moments) into the traditionally used formulations of E (D) and H (B) fields in materials.

    The phenomenal growth, in the last decade, of fiber and integrated optics with their many faceted applications has prompted us to frame a contemporary course on optical waveguides-the basic building blocks of these emerging disciplines. Our approach is divided into two parts: in Part I, an outline of theory course topics has been provided; and in Part II, guidelines for beginning a laboratory on o... View full abstract»
