A software simulation testbed for CDMA wireless communication systems
This thesis develops a software wireless communication testbed which simulates a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) link. CDMA is a popular technology in cellular systems due to its superior capacity and performance. The ...
Change detection using types for non-stationary processes
Space shuttle operation requires the monitoring of a large number of stationary signals in the search for "anomalies." This problem amounts to determining whether a change has occurred in a signal having a partially known ...
Electrical transport in a single-electron transistor coupled to a tunable environment
A novel model system is developed to study the effects of the environment on transport properties of a superconducting single-electron transistor (S-SET). The impedance of a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) 50 nm below ...
Development of an ion/electron plasma spectrometer
This thesis details the development of the Miniaturized Electrostatic DUal top-hat Spherical Analyzer (MEDUSA) instrument, including calibration, simulation, and data processing software. MEDUSA combines two-species ...
