    A method of contact-bonding lenses to fibre endfaces is outlined. The lenses are of the same diameter as the fibre. Contact bonding reduces the adjustment effort compared with that required for independent lenses. Measurements performed on fibres with contact-bonding lenses using a GaAs laser diode as a light source showed a clear increase in coupling efficiency for the launching of light into the...

  • Crosspolarisation measurements using a composite feed with parasitic elements

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):480 - 481
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (290 KB)

    Measurements using a composite primary feed with parasitic auxiliary elements reveal that both the copolar and crosspolar performances of this feed are better than those of the similar feed employing derived elements. An improvement of 10 dB in the crosspolar peak over that of the single dipole feed was obtained. An increase in antenna gain of about 3.3 dB was measured with a 3 dB suppression in s...

  • Efficient ternary transmission codes

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):482 - 484
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (435 KB)

    To limit distortion in digital cable systems due to low-frequency cuts, it has been usual either to use quantised feedback or use a code with a finite digital-sum variation. It is shown that these restrictions are unnecessarily stringent. Systems typically use 3-level codes, and some codes requiring less bandwidih than the 4B3T type are analysed. View full abstract»

  • Comparison of boron and neon damage effects in boron ion-implanted resistors

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):484 - 485
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (312 KB)

    Boron and neon damage implants were used in fabricating integrated-circuit resistors in silicon. Resistor properties were studied as functions of damaging ion species and dose. Sheet resistances in the 10000 ¿/¿ range were obtained with low temperature and voltage sensitivities and good d.c. isolation. View full abstract»

  • Determinacy of computation schemata for both parallel and simultaneous operation

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):485 - 486
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (432 KB)

    Computation schemata represent the flow of data and control during a parallel computing process. The letter introduces the concept of inhibit branches to the control schema and shows how they may be used to ensure determinacy under simultaneous operating conditions. A determinacy algorithm is presented. View full abstract»

  • Low-frequency capacitance measurements

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):487 - 488
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (416 KB)

    The letter proposes a technique for the fast determination at extremely low frequencies of the capacitance and leakage components of capacitors. The proposed method permits the measurement of C and G in only a few cycles. An apparatus is described employing this technique for the automatic measurement of m.o.s. capacitance as a function of frequency and bias voltage. View full abstract»

  • Fast photoluminescence modulation for optoelectronic applications

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):490 - 491
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (283 KB)

    The principle of photoluminescence (p.l.) intensity modulation is demonstrated with near-bandgap p.l. of n GaAs bulk material. The p.l. is modulated by a semitransparent schottky barrier. Preliminary experimental results show the feasibility of fast p.l. pulse modulation (at 1 Mbit/s) and the applicability of this principle to optical signal transmission. View full abstract»

  • Numerical check of g.t.d. near-field calculations for the meteosat satellite

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (517 KB)

    The near-field and the far-field patterns from the high-gain S band antenna an the METEOSAT are calculated by the geometrical theory of diffraction. The far field is transformed into the near field through an expansion in spherical harmonics. The resulting transformed field agrees well with the g.t.d. near field. View full abstract»

  • Mildly suboptimal digital filters using a host windowing approach

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):493 - 495
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (458 KB)

    A digital-filter design technique is described which employs simple trigonometric windowing of a `host¿ digital filter. In contrast to the usual windowing rationale which uses a truncated ideal impulse response, this approach uses an optimal (finite-length-minimax) host impulse response. It is shown that optimal Hilbert-transform filters serve as suitable hosts for lowpass filters of even-length ... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (295 KB)

    Further new results regarding stability of the original model designed using reduced-order models are derived. The new stability conditions given are independent of how the reduced-order models are obtained, and the results could be adapted to any general multivariable frequency design methods.

  • Independent control of temperature coefficient and breakdown voltage in Zener diodes

    Publication Year: 1975, Page(s):499 - 500
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (219 KB)

    The temperature coefficient of the breakdown voltage of a Zener (voltage-reference) diode has become accepted as an implicit function of the breakdown voltage. The letter describes a simple technique whereby the temperature coefficient may be independently controlled by altering the doping profile. To illustrate the technique, design criteria for a silicon diode with a breakdown voltage of 20 V an... View full abstract»
