  1. Software for Weld Sensing and Control

    SBC: ANAMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) accounts for a significant proportion of all welding performed. Due to its relatively high speeds and metal deposition rates as well as relatively low equipment and maintenance costs, it is also the most popular process for automated, and especially robotic, welding. There are, however, problems that significantly restrict its manufacturing applications. The efforts at ...

  2. A Compact High Current Driver for Semiconductor Diode Lasers, Suitable for Laser Radar (LADR) Applications

    SBC: Garron Instrument Engineering            Topic: N/A

    A fast-pulsed (3-15ns FWHM) high-current (>500A) driver for high power diode lasers or laser arrays is proposed. Present high-current diode drivers typically use MOSFET switches to modulate the current. It is difficult to achieve very fast pulses with such devices because the inherent capacitance of the gate electrode cannot be charged and discharged quickly. Lower current, but faster diode driver ...

  3. Implementation of High-GHz-to-THz Optical Data Links

    SBC: TEMPLEX TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Recent research has demonstrated a number of new optical processes based on the interaction of temporally structured light beams with spectrally-selective recording materials. One of these all-optical processes provides for the ultrahigh speed, temporal-waveform-controlled, spatial routing of optical beams (time-to-space conversion). Propagation of an optical data stream through an entirely passiv ...

  4. Optical Random Access Memory

    SBC: TEMPLEX TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Recent laboratory demonstrations have shown that time-domain persistent spectral holeburning memory can achieve record areal densities and density-bandwidth products. The same work has shown that many kilobits of data can be spectrally multiplexed within single spatial storage locations. These factors, taken together, open the door to an entirely new class of optical data storage, i.e., read/write ...
