Circuit theory of linear noisy networks by Hermann A Haus( Book )

17 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Excerpt from the Preface The principal motivation for this work arose from the obvious desirability of finding a single quantity, a tag so to speak, to describe the noise performance of a two-terminal-pair amplifier. The possibility of the existence of such a quantity and even the general functional form which it might be expected to take were suggested by previous work of one of the authors on microwave tubes and their noise performance. This work showed that noise parameters of the electron beam set an ultimate limit to the entire noise performance of the amplifier that employed the beam. In the microwave tube case, however, the findings were based heavily upon the physical nature of the electron beam, and it was not immediately clear that a general theory of noise performance for any linear amplifier could be made without referring again to some detailed physical mechanism. In order to detach the study of noise performance from specific physical mechanisms, one had to have recourse to general circuit theory of active networks. Such a theory had grown up around the problems associated with transistor amplifiers, and important parts of it were available to us through the association of one of us with Professor S. J. Mason. This combination of circumstances led to the collaboration of the authors.Two major guiding principles, or clues, could be drawn from the experience on microwave tubes. One such clue was the general form of the probable appropriate noise parameter. The other was the recognition that matrix algebra and a proper eigenvalue formulation would be required in order to achieve a general theory without becoming hopelessly involved in algebraic detail.Essentially by trial and error, guided by some power-gain theorems in active circuit theory, we first found a few invariants of noisy networks. Afterward, while we were trying to decide around which quantities we should build a matrix-eigenvalue formulation leading to these same invariants, we were aided by the fact that Mr. D. L. Bobroff recognized a connection between the invariants which we had found and the problem of the available power of a multiterminal-pair network.Armed with this additional idea, we consulted extensively with Professor L. N. Howard of MIT's Department of Mathematics, in search of the appropriate matrix-eigenvalue problem. As a result of his suggestions, we were able to reach substantially the final form of the desired formulation.Once the proper eigenvalue approach was found, additional results and interpretations followed rapidly. In particular, the idea that the eigenvalue formulation should be associated with a canonical form of the noisy network was suggested in a conversation with Proessor Shannon.One of the principal results of the work is that it furnishes a single number, or tag, which may be said to characterize the amplifier noise performance on the basis of the signal-to-noise-ratio criterion. The novel features of this tag are two in number: First, it clears up questions of the noise performance of low-gain amplifiers or of the effect upon noise performance of degenerative feedback; second, it provides for the first time a systematic treatment of the noise performance of negative-resistance amplifiers. The latter results were not expected in the original motivation for the study but grew from insistent demands upon the internal consistency of the theory. It is interesting that the negative-resistance case will probably turn out to be one of the most important practical results of our work.Another result worth mentioning here, however, is the canonical form of linear noisy networks. This form summarizes in a clear, almost visual, manner the connection between the internal noise of a network at any particular frequency and its (resistive, positive, or negative) part

Passive components for dense optical integration by Christina Manolatou( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Passive Components for Dense Optical Integration presents a theoretical and numerical investigation of high index-contrast (HIC) passive components that can serve as building blocks at the end-points and nodes of WDM communications systems. The main characteristic of these structures is their miniature size and their low radiation loss due to the strong light confinement in high index-contrast systems. Thus large scale, high density optical integration may be possible with the associated advantages of increased functionality, compactness and cost. Passive Components for Dense Optical Integration presents novel devices for filtering, optical interconnections and coupling to fibers. The latter part of the book explores coupling structures that are only a few wavelengths long yet can provide efficient coupling. Also discussed are possible future directions for this technology. Passive Components for Dense Optical Integration will be of interest to researchers and development engineers in integrated optics and fiber optics. It also provides an excellent supplement to a graduate course in optics

The force density in polarizable and magnetizable fluids by L. J Chu( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The force density in polarizable and magnetizable fluids in nonuniform motion is evaluated in a way that is consistent with the special theory of relativity. The derivation is based on a generalization of the principle of virtual work. For application of the principle, it is necessary to know the energy density and power-flow density in a local rest frame of the fluid element under consideration. These are obtained from thermodynamic information and an extrapolation of the Poynting theorem applied to a rigid, nondeforming medium. Two different formulations of electrodynamics of moving and deforming media are compared. It is shown that they lead to the same force density if the same thermodynamic information is used in each of them. A simple model for the force density is obtained, starting from the E-H formulation. (Author)

MIT Microwiggler for Free Electron Laser Application. Non-perturbative Electron Beam Characterization with a Microwiggler( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The potential of undulators to provide beam diagnostic information has been cited in the literature for many years. We demonstrate that while important parameters describing the beam - the energy, energy spread, divergence, spot size, matching and bunchlength - are convolved together in the synchrotron emission, a careful experimental setup can extract divergence, energy spread and bunchlength from this convolution. The MIT microwiggler is uniquely suited for the development and testing of electron beam diagnostic techniques. A pulsed electromagnet with long length and extensive tunability, it provides flexibility and high quality at a period short enough to produce visible radiation at moderate beam energies (40-55 MeV). We have achieved a field uniformity of 0.08% in rms peak amplitudes and have performed measurements to test this claim against a comprehensive set of criteria, thus marking the first time this figure of merit has been reduced below 0.1% in any sub-cm period wiggler. Studies with electron beam were performed at the Accelerator Test Facility at BNL. The long term statistics collected of the wiggler performance under full operation will be documented. The production of visible radiation, where numerous diagnostics are readily available, makes single shot techniques a special strength of the microwiggler. We have developed a family of beam diagnostic techniques with the wiggler, making use of the spectrum, spatial profile, and fluctuational characteristics of its emissions. Cone measurements are used to characterize divergence and energy spread. The systematic diagnosis and understanding of the spontaneous emission characteristics is important in determining when Self Amplified Spontaneous Emission begins. This is discussed in the context of measurements of SASE at 1.064 microns
Pulse Excited Fiber Gyro( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of the research was to study the operation of pulse excited gyros. This objective required several innovations: (1) Conventional gyros are excited cw with radiation of short coherence time. The gyro must be pulse-excited. The reason for pulse excitation derives from the ultimate objective of using squeezed radiation for the improvement of gyro performance. Squeezing requires pulse excitation of high peak intensity. (2) Development of laser sources that are of particularly low noise and that have repetition rates of 1GHz or higher. The high repetition rate is required for the suppression of Guided Acoustic Wave Brillouin Scattering. (3) Study and development of a new orthogonal polarization gyro suitable for injection of squeezed vacuum
