  1. Low Noise, InGaAs Dual Photodiodes for Precise Timing


    Conversion of highly stable optical clocks into electrical clocks through photodetection introduces excess phase noise, thereby degrading the frequency stability. This noise is primarily generated due to the conversion of optical intensity noise into electrical phase noise by photodiode¿s non-linearity, specifically power-to-phase conversion. During Phase I, Discovery developed dual photodiodes h ...

  2. Programmable Fingerprint Emulator

    SBC: PHT Aerospace            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the development of a technology apparatus which can dynamically synthesize a mechanical fingerprint pattern, from an electronic image or from a computer-generated artificial pattern, onto a 2-dimensional pliable surface whose surface height is modulated by protrusions in the z-axis direction. When mechanically applied to a fingerprint sensor-under-test, the synthesized modulat ...
