Polarization reversal in thin film lithium niobate on silicon
The spontaneous polarization of thin film LiNbO$\sb3$ has been shown to be reversible with the application of an electric field at room temperature. This electric field is applied across the sample in the form of a voltage ...
Performance prediction of packet switched multistage interconnection networks in an execution-driven environment
This thesis studies the performance of multistage interconnection networks (MINs) using execution-driven simulation. The networks were studied with varying network configurations, numbers of inputs and outputs of the network ...
Efficient simulation of simple instruction set array processors
Simple instruction set array processors are groups of regularly connected processors with small instruction sets and local memories. The processors are augmented by built-in communication instructions. Because of the ...
Development of a high power, ultrashort pulse laser system
This work focuses on the development of a new high power, ultrashort pulse dye laser system based on solid state Nd:YAG pump sources for a synchronously pumped dye laser and a series of dye amplifiers. This system will be ...
Modeling process scheduling and system software in multiprocessors
This thesis presents new techniques for simulating multiprogramming and interrupt servicing in an execution driven simulation environment. We have incorporated these techniques into the Rice Parallel Processing Testbed ...
