Overcoming intra-cavity nonlinear phase limitations in cavity-enhanced optical parametric chirped pulse amplification through cavity-locking

Aleem M. Siddiqui; Jeffrey Moses; Kyung-Han Hong; Franz X. Kärtner CLEO: 2013, 2013

  • Circuit-Level Design, Implementation, and Verification

    This chapter gives some design issues and practical recipes to complete the design flow of modulator. It deals with macromodel implementation of Ms as an essential design stage to relate behavioral-level models with circuit-level description. Then, it describes how to include circuit noise in electrical- level simulations of Ms, and shows how to process the modulator output data extracted from electrical simulations in SPICE-like simulators, in order to characterize the performance of Ms. Next, the chapter moves down to the transistor-level implementation, giving a number of practical design guidelines and describing diverse simulation test benches to properly design and characterize the performance of basic building blocks (CMOS Switches, operational amplifiers, transconductors, comparators, and current-steering DACs). Other auxiliary circuits needed to implement Ms are also discussed. Finally, the chapter deals with some of the most important design issues related to the layout, prototyping, and testing of high-performance Ms.

  • DESIGNING POWER ELECTRONIC CONTROL SYSTEMS

    This chapter explores how a computer simulation can be used in designing a control loop for power electronic???based systems and testing it in advance to calibrate its output. It considers the boost converter that is a switching converter that has the same components as the buck converter. There are two suggested procedures for designing the controller, the K Method and pole placement. Type III controller can be used to compensate the output voltage of a DC/DC boost converter, which varies with changes in the input voltage as well as the output load. The chapter presents a diagram for showing the PSIM simulation for a full switching circuit with a transistor, a diode, and operational amplifiers with implementation of a saw tooth waveform for the pulse???width modulation (PWM). It discusses the laboratory project to implement a DC motor model in Simulink and a controller in MATLAB in order to assess a digital control scheme.

    PSpice for Circuit Theory and Electronic Devices is one of a series of five PSpice books and introduces the latest Cadence Orcad PSpice version 10.5 by simulating a range of DC and AC exercises. It is aimed primarily at those wishing to get up to speed with this version but will be of use to high school students, undergraduate students, and of course, lecturers. Circuit theorems are applied to a range of circuits and the calculations by hand after analysis are then compared to the simulated results. The Laplace transform and the s-plane are used to analyze CR and LR circuits where transient signals are involved. Here, the Probe output graphs demonstrate what a great learning tool PSpice is by providing the reader with a visual verification of any theoretical calculations. Series and parallel-tuned resonant circuits are investigated where the difficult concepts of dynamic impedance and selectivity are best understood by sweeping different circuit parameters through a range of values. O taining semiconductor device characteristics as a laboratory exercise has fallen out of favour of late, but nevertheless, is still a useful exercise for understanding or modelling semiconductor devices. Inverting and non-inverting operational amplifiers characteristics such as gain-bandwidth are investigated and we will see the dependency of bandwidth on the gain using the performance analysis facility. Power amplifiers are examined where PSpice/Probe demonstrates very nicely the problems of cross-over distortion and other problems associated with power transistors. We examine power supplies and the problems of regulation, ground bounce, and power factor correction. Lastly, we look at MOSFET device characteristics and show how these devices are used to form basic CMOS logic gates such as NAND and NOR gates.

  • A 14bit 80kHz SigmaDelta A/D Converter: Modeling, Design, and Performance Evaluation

    This paper describes the development of a sigma-delta A/D converter. Included is a brief overview of sigma-delta conversion. The A/D) converter achieves an 88.5-dB dynamic range and a maximum signal-to-noise ratio of 81.5 dB. The harmonic distortion is negligible. This level of performance is about 10 dB higher than previously reported results for oversampled A/D converters in this frequency range [1], [2]. The analog modulator employs a double-integration switched-capacitor architecture with an oversampling rate of 10.24 MHz. Transconductance amplifiers having a 160-MHz ft were developed for the integrators. The circuit is implemented in a 1.75-¿m 5-V CMOS process. The analog circuitry occupies 2 mm2 of silicon area and consumes 75 mW of power. Some of the difficult problems associated with evaluating the performance of sigma-delta converters are described. The design of a sigma-delta development and performance evaluation system is presented. This system includes a custom interface board linking the chip to a Sun workstation, and extensive digital signal processing and analysis software.

  • Bibliography

    "Do you want to design a wireless transmitter or receiver for hand-held telephones? Have you wondered why the printed circuit wires on high-frequency circuits don't always run in a straight line? This valuable text will answer all of your questions regarding component parasitics and circuit characterization for rf/microwave amplifier, oscillator, and filter circuit design and analysis. You will understand why capacitors act as inductors and vice versa and why amplifiers work like oscillators, while oscillators for local area networks work more like local area heaters. Application of the information in Introduction to Microwave Circuits will reduce design-cycle time and costs, markedly increasing the probability of first-time success in printed circuit or monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) design. Several approaches are taken into consideration, such as the effects of currents on the ground plane, bypass and coupling capacitors, and nonlinear effects in linear circuits. Featured topics include: * Incorporation of component parasitics in the design cycle * Closed form solution to oscillator design * Odd mode stability analysis * PIN diode analysis for high-power switching applications An integrated design example of a 1.25 GHz amplifier, oscillator, and filter printed circuit is also included, which could be useful in printed circuit board designs from tens of megahertz to tens of gigahertz. Introduction to Microwave Circuits provides the tools necessary to analyze or synthesize microwave circuits. This text is an essential reference for undergraduate students, microwave engineers, and administrators. Also, it will assist experienced designers in other fields to meet the current rapid expansion of communication system applications and work effectively i n microwave circuit design. About the Author Robert J. Weber began his prolific career in the Solid State Research Laboratory at the Collins Radio Company, later a part of Rockwell International. For 25 years, he worked on advanced development and applied research in the one- to ten-gigahertz frequency range and received several distinguished awards for his valuable contributions to the field. Dr. Weber is involved in ongoing experimental research in integrating microwave circuits with other devices such as MEMS, chemical sensors, and electro-optics.

  • Regeneration Theory

    Regeneration or feed-back is or considerable importance in many applications of vacuum tubes. The most obvious example is that of vacuum tube oscillators, where the feed-back is carried beyond the singing point. Another application is the 21-circuit test of balance, in which the current due to the unbalance between two impedances is fed back, the gain being increased until singing occurs. Still other applications are cases where portions of the output current of amp1ifiers are fed back to the input either unintentionally or by design. For the purpose of investigating the stability of such devices they may be looked on as amplifiers whose output is connected to the input through a transducer. This paper deals with the theory of stability of such systems.
