Modeling Chirp and Phase Inversion in Wavelength Converters based on Symmetrical MZI-SOAs for use in All-Optical Networks
All-optical wavelength conversion based on multi-section semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) in a symmetrical Mach-Zehnder interferometer (SMZI) is modeled for use in optical networks. It incorporates an enhanced SOA ...
Combustion synthesis and subsequent sintering of titanium-matrix composites
Titanium-matrix composites containing up to 50 wt% TiC particles were prepared by combustion synthesis using elemental powders. The products were subsequently sintered at 1160°C for various periods of time. SEM and X-ray ...
Three-dimensional numerical model for open-channels with free-surface variations
Discussion on: 'Three-dimensional numerical model for open-channels with free-surface variations', E.A. Meselhe and F. Sotiropoulos, Vol. 38 No. 2 pp.115-121
Fretting wear in self-piercing riveted aluminium alloy sheet
Fretting wear in aluminium alloy AA5754 joined by self-pierce riveting (SPR), a relatively new fastening technique increasingly used in vehicle structures, has been investigated in this paper. Surface damages have been ...
Sub-Band Based Text-Dependent Speaker Verification
This paper addresses various issues involved in sub-band based text-dependent speaker verification. The first part of the discussions is concerned with the classification methods. An important issue addressed in this part ...
The effect of different metallic counterface materials and different surface treatments on the wear and friction of polyamide 66 and its composite in rolling-sliding contact
The effect of different metallic counterface materials and different surface treatments on the tribological behaviour of polymer and polymer composite under unlubricated, non-conformal and rolling-sliding contact has been ...
