Ultra-high Frequency Linear Fiber Optic Systems by Kam Y Lau

By Kam Y Lau

This publication presents an in-depth therapy of either linear fiber-optic structures and their key allowing units. It offers a concise yet rigorous therapy of the idea and perform of analog (linear) fiber-optics hyperlinks and platforms that represent the root of Hybrid Fiber Coax infrastructure in present-day CATV distribution and cable modem web entry. rising functions in distant fiber-optic feed for free-space millimeter wave company campus networks also are defined. matters similar to dispersion and interferometric noise are handled quantitatively, and capacity for mitigating them are defined. This large yet concise textual content will therefore be worthy not just to scholars of fiber-optics conversation but in addition to practising engineers. To the second one variation of this e-book very important new elements of linear fiber-optic transmission applied sciences are further, comparable to excessive point process architectural matters, algorithms for deriving the optimum frequency project, at once modulated or externally modulated laser transmitters and using Erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) in linear fiber optic platforms. major examples of box deployed army platforms enabled through linear fiber optic hyperlinks are defined in an appendix.

The Spark of Life: Electricity in the Human Body by Frances Ashcroft

By Frances Ashcroft

• What occurs in the course of a middle assault?
• Can somebody particularly die of fright? what's loss of life, besides?
• How does electroshock therapy have an effect on the mind?
• what's realization?

The solutions to those questions lie within the electric indications continuously touring via bodies, riding our ideas, our activities, or even the thrashing of our hearts.

The heritage of the way scientists found the function of electrical energy within the human physique is a colourful one, choked with remarkable personalities, fierce debates, and magnificent experiments. additionally, present-day study on electrical energy and ion channels has created the most intriguing fields in technological know-how, laying off gentle on stipulations starting from diabetes and asthma to cystic fibrosis, migraines, and male infertility.

With inimitable wit and a transparent, clean voice, award-winning researcher Frances Ashcroft weaves jointly compelling real-life tales with the most recent medical findings, giving us a remarkable account of the physique electrical.
